Cumbia Beat Vol. 2
12" Vinyl


2022 repress. "The 'resurrection' of Peruvian tropical music, of psychedelic cumbia or, as others like to call it, 'chicha,' is perhaps one of the most surprising musical phenomena in recent years . . . Elements of rock, folklore, música criolla, Andean music, Amazonian music, Colombian cumbia, salsa and even psychedelia intermingle in this 'cannibal' genre capable of devouring and assimilating every possible influence. Both Enrique Delgado and Manzanita, the two great founding guitarists of the genre, made music that absorbed all possible manner of styles. Vampisoul features not only tunes from Delgado with his group Los Destellos and from Manzanita, but also from their side projects: Delgado's Los Casmeños and Manzanita's El Monje Loco. Los Girasoles, Los Yungas, Los Beta 5 and Los Ecos continued those sonic explorations . . . Although this compilation consists mostly of instrumentals, a classic of Peruvian tropical music, 'Colegiala' by Los Ilusionistas, is included with vocals from Carlos Ramírez 'Centeno'. Los Beta 5 would never turn to the sung format . . . Another group that has in their origins instrumental beat spirit and sound are Los Ecos. The sparkling-clean guitar sound of their leader Beto Cuestas always shines in songs filled with a delicate pop sensibility and melodies that oscillate between melancholy and danceable experimentation. Los Yungas had recorded songs in which música criolla and huayno are 'cumbianized,' but the more significant point of departure happened when Los Demonios Del Mantaro released a historic single . . . [Carlos] Baquerizo was also the first to introduce an electric guitar in Peruvian cumbia in Los 5 Palomillas, a side project of Los Demonios. The influence of the 'provincial sound' would be felt by many other guitarists . . . One of the most original and surprising guitar sounds in Peruvian tropical music would be that of Maximiliano Chávez from Los Orientales De Paramonga, who created a very peculiar style of tropical music with deep basses, galloping percussion, and wah-wah guitar . . .Los Mirlos, with their guitars and hypnotic grooves, achieved the most popular and transnational of the Amazonian sounds. The other Amazonian miracle was Juaneco Y Su Combo, led by Juan Wong. Their music, full of references to Amazonian mythology and to ayahuasca (a psychoactive drink), featured the guitar of Noé Fachín." --Alfredo Villar
