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.

‘Curupira’ is the 2nd single by German jazz ensemble Muito Kaballa Power Ensemble as part of their upcoming album ‘Mamari’ on 28 May. Curupira is a mythological creature that was known for being able to communicate with the inhabitants of the forest, notably alarming them about danger.
The song starts with the sounds of an awakening rainforest slowly flowing into a lively groove of the jungle, that musically depicts all its power and diversity. However, the forest is burning and we are calling Curupira to come help us. The Baritone solo depicts the arrival of the demonic figure. The jungle sounds appear again but are quickly drowned out by the arrival of humans and the sounds of machines cutting the trees. Vocals and spoken word by Nora Beisel.
The remix by German-Ghanaian producer Lee Bass (Gato Preto) takes Curupira to a different level. The drop is definitely another wake up call. While making you dance, the remix puts the message right to the front alarming the listener about the ecological collapse.
This single serves as a fundraiser to support a reforestation project in Brazil – Resgate Climático. To actively protect and reforest land in Bahia that once used to be pristine rainforest. Under the current political circumstances and the record wildfires in the country, their work has become more important than ever.
