New release: Chicha Popular: Love & Social Political Songs From Discos Horoscopo 1977-1987

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 Up SebCat & 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.
