Chicha cumbia is the Peruvian style of psychedelic cumbia originated in the Amazonian north and taken to the big cities, becoming famous allover the country and stil is! In those times, the chicha cumbia was looked down upon by many people (of higher so-called *sophisticated* classes), seeing it as music for the poor, the drunk, the criminals, the immigrants from the north or highlands. Indeed, it was the music of the poor labourers, those who lived & worked in shantytowns, music that sung about their hardships, giving them inspiration at the same time. All this makes for a wonderfull vintage style that possesses a special power through enchanting melodies, tremolo guitars and strong lyrics.

The biggest bands of that era were Los Destellos, Los Diablos Rojos, Los Mirlos, Los Shapis, Chacalón Y La Nueva Crema, Juaneco Y Su Combo, Los Wemblers de Iquitos and many more. If you like to get this music, we can highly recommend the excellent Roots of Chicha compilations on Brussels label Crammed Discs or the refined Cumbia Beat compilations on Vampisoul.
