Chicha Libre plays a mixture of latin rhythms, surf music and psychedelic pop inspired by Peruvian music from Lima and the Amazon. The Brooklyn-based band mixes up covers of forgotten Chicha classics with French-tinged originals, re-interpretation of 70’s pop classics as well as cumbia versions of pieces by Satie and Wagner.

Chicha is the name of a corn-based liquor favored by the ... Read more in Amazon's Chicha Libre Store

Product Description

From the multi-national mixing pot of Brooklyn, New York's Chicha Libre return with their own take on Peruvian chicha music mixing it with contemporary sounds from Latin America and adding a touch of indie rock.

This album of originals takes its cues from Peruvian chicha, a style that put surf guitar, rainforest psychedelics and Andean flavour to a cumbia beat with open-minded exuberance. Chicha Libre has learned from the unsung mad geniuses of the music - such as Ranil and Los Shapis, then taken it as a springboard to join the international stream of tropical experimenters from Colombia to Argentina.

As the legends of 60s and 70s rock sucked up and radically transformed blues and jazz, today's tropicalists are reshaping cumbia's sound to suit their own unabashed, unconventional tastes. For Chicha Libre, this means vintage rock sounds rumble past irrepressible bursts of percussion, the Valkyries cavort to mellotrons, pan-Latin beats merge with curious lyrics, and the occasional passerby joins in with Guinean guitar or pedal steel riffs.

Personnel: Joshua Camp (Electravox, mellotron, synthesizers, vocals, effect s), Karina Colis (timbales, vocals, clave contro), Olivier Conan (cuatro, vocals, effects), Nicholas Cudahy (bass, tupper box), Vincent Douglas (guitars), Neil Ochoa (congas, cajón, guiro, guacharaca, quijada de burro, maracas)

I bought this because I have the previous Chicha Libre album which I enjoyed enormously and play regularly.
Unfortunately, this second offering doesn't really seem to maintain the same standard. The novelty element of the sound has obviously gone for me, but I really don't think the tunes are up to the same catchy standard as 'Sonido Amazonico', which is really what this genre should be all about, although their take on 'Ride of the Valkyrie' is quite entertaining.
If you're looking for just one good example of chicha, get the last CD. Otherwise, it's one for the hardcore follower.

I picked this up after listening to their first album, Sonido Amazonio, and was impressed by their sound. Chicha Libre is a band that is new but play old gems of Cumbia music from Peru. Their sound is like it came from the '60s. But this album is better than Sonido Amazonio. The band is more creative and loose this time around and the music is like a blend of Folk, Santana (Jingo days), and cheesy sci-fi soundtracks from italy. Its a rare blend but mixes so well here. Its half instrumentals and half vocals, even if you don't know spanish, the music is heavy with electric guitars, spooky organs, percussions and deep bass.

This is their best entry yet.

i saw these guys in new orleans about 8 years ago. i loved them. they introduced me to chicha music and cumbias. 8 years later and im still in love with it. this newer album is as incredible as their first. maybe even more so. my least favorite track is their cover of "ride of the valkyries". its not that its bad, or that i dont like it. just, compared with the other tracks on the lp its my least fave.

Heard "The Ride of the Valkyries" from this album on the radio (KDHX in St Louis) and had to have it. Some of the other songs are great, too.

KCRW (NPR) had them on today 9 May 2012

Did you love the "Macarna", do you wonder if you're still "Living La Vida Loca"? If the 90s taught us anything, white people love Latin music. And the whites are going to love this album. If you are white, buy this album.
