We have talked about the afro-peruvian, and many of us, still believe that’s the next step in folklore, i mean, we (musicians) have explored Latin America in trends… first Bossa, then tango, then everything got reggaetonized , many also moved to latin balkan and now it is cumbia, and o’course all their own variations.. baile funk, latin fusion, so on… peruvian cumbia and peruvian afro folklore are still “virgin territories” even for latinos..
AND I HAVE TO BE HONEST: MANY OF LATINOS MUSICIANS AND LISTENERS don’t really “dig” this CHICHERO culture, and perhaps that’s the main reason why it hasn’t gotten big as it should be..
for the listener who has no social prejudice..and if it is his/her first time listening to it…
this is what some might call PSYCHEDELIC CUMBIA, or Amazon Cumbia, and who better than JUANECO y SU COMBO to be the biggest name of the sub genre.
in 2007 one band dared to do a “rescue” of popular peruvian music with songs which were influential in Peruvian folklore like “Soy provinciano” (Lorenzo Palacios, Chacalón), “El aguajal” (Los Shapis) and “La danza de los mirlos”, from another Amazon legend, Los Mirlos!!!! AND OBVIOUSLY JUANECO GOT A COVER!!
WHO R THESE GUYS?
Bareto is born in 2000 following the tradition of seventies Peruvian bands like Black Sugar and The Belkings, true entertainers of their generation’s parties with a unique and original sound.
