Chicha Popular: Love & Social Political Songs From Discos Horoscopo 1977-1987
New release on Rebel Up Records, +5 years in the making, retrospective of worker class & migrant chicha cumbia from Discos Horoscopo label from Lima, Peru in the 1980’s.
Between 1977 and 1987, the Discos Horóscopo label produced the largest wave of Andean tropical cumbia in the world; ‘chicha’, a reference to the indigenous Andean alcoholic drink. The label was filled with contemporary iconic figures such as Chacalón y La Nueva Crema, Los Shapis, Pintura Roja, Los Ovnis, Grupo Alegría and other groups which today have a cult status in Peru and beyond. Together they created a unique style with the capacity to talk about both love and uprooting, unemployment, struggle of classes, internal violence and impossible loves.
Selection made by DJ Pinchado, Rebel UpSebCat & Jalo del Prado Nunez. Out now digitally, streaming and as 2LP deluxe gatefold edition with 12 page booklet with Liner notes by Alfredo Villar and translated song texts (in spanish & english) and graphic gatefold design by Ruta Mare.
Available as 2LP or with limited edition 7inch bonus single (Los Shapis & blind singer Nohemi) Also very limited edition run of 60 Chicha Popular Tshirts available, designed in neon paint by Ruta Mare. Check the bundles on our Bandcamp.
After last year’s fun, Rebel Up & Friends are coming back at Saintklet summer outdoor terrace on the Bxl canalside! with a great international lineup of special guests DJ Cami Layé Okún, Edna Martinez & Fresh Nunas, hosted by SebCat.
Cami Layé Okún (Havana, Cuba) Cuban DJ/selector who collects vinyl records from allover the world as a way of sharing stories through music with similar organic roots. Her sound spans from the tropical to the tribal; think African and Caribbean rhythms mixed with a Latin soul and sensibility, engaging audiences and dancefloors with Cuban disco, Afro-Caribbean rarities and tropical Amazonian funky grooves. Currently based in Havana, she is so far the only local DJ that produces and promotes events in a 100% vinyl format. Since 2020 Cami hosts her own monthly show ‘Insolar’ on London’s NTS Radio where she curated sunny music from different parts of the world. https://www.mixcloud.com/cami-lay%C3%A9-ok%C3%BAn/
Edna Martinez (Cartagena, Colombia / Berlin) DJ / curator, artist and radio host from the Colombian Caribbean based in Berlin, Germany. Her musical selection is linked to her artistic research in which she explores autobiographical migratory routes with the concept of resistance as its axis. Her sound involves Afro-Caribbean organic rhythms, jazz bases, tribal polyrhythm, Arabic folklore, and more. She is the woman behind projects such as “Latinarab” a trip from Jaffa to the Arab Caribbean, and “El Volcán El Orgullo de Berlin”, the only soundsystem picó party in Germany. She also moderates monthly radio shows on Radio Alhara (Palestine), Worldwide FM (London) and Boxout.fm (India). https://www.mixcloud.com/ednamartinezdj https://soundcloud.com/ednamartinezdj

We hope you doing fine during this ‘deconfinement’ stage, slowly getting back to normal life.
