After 2009's release of Chicha Libre's album 'Sonido Amazonico' (wherein the Brooklyn band performed originals and covers inspired by chicha, the brand of psychedelic surf cumbia which emerged in Peru in the late '60s), it's time to go back to the source with this excellent collection of vintage chicha.
'Roots Of Chicha 2' showcases eleven bands and sixteen tracks recorded from 1967 to 1981: music rooted in the changing sounds fostered by the worldwide musical revolution that took place in the late '60s, yet still sounding oddly timeless.
It focuses on the urban aspect of the music, highlighting some lesser-known bands, as well as including some of the early Cuban-influenced groups who played a crucial role in the elaboration of the chicha sound, together with some of the later bands who play in the more Andean style that came to be referred to as chicha.

peruvian cumbia, or chicha, is a hybrid music. it was influenced by genres as various as rock n roll, surf, colombian cumbia and andean folk. the bands represented on this fine barbes collection are all incredibly original and imaginative, with my favorites being Wembler's de Iquitos, Destellos and ilusionistas (Colegiala is just such a perfect little song, and La Danza del Petrolero stays with you long after you've stopped listening).
this is simply mind blowing stuff. it should be classified as a dangerous drug, it's that addictive
