Masters Of Chicha Vol 1

Masters Of Chicha Vol 1 by Juaneco Y Su Combo
Released: Oct 2008
Label: Barbès Records
All right, are you ready for this one? This band of Mestizos fronted by three generations of a Chinese-Peruvian family dresses up like the Shipibo Indians from their Amazonian hometown to play chicha, a genre popular in the Peruvian highlands in the 1960s that was fueled by Colombian cumbia, Brazilian carimbo, surf rock and local hallucinogens, and recently enjoyed a revival courtesy of a French Brooklynite. Sound like a heady brew? It oughtta: chicha was named after a corn liquor, and the effervescent, blissed-out sounds on this seminal band's retrospective will leave you feeling good.
