Roots of Chicha 2, The [coll] – [Barbes]

This is a collection of 16 Peruvian cumbias or chichas as they later became known from 1968-1981. Inside is a fabulous booklet with the history of the transition of how the word chicha came to be. You can also find excellent details on each of the bands featured in this Vol. 2 collection. The entire album is very lively and upbeat with a tropical feel and a bit rock, pop and surf sounds too. Psychedelic guitar, organs, cowbells, maracas, hand drums, drum kit and many more percussions fill the entire album. Some tracks are instrumental only (#1, 6, 8, 10, 12). All tracks a joy to listen to! = )
