Chicha Libre - Canibalismo - out on Crammed Discs

(CD/Digital) Barbès Records / Crammed Discs CRAW82, 2012-05-28

Chicha Libre is a Brooklyn collective made up of French, American, Venezuelan and Mexican musicians who play a mixture of latin rhythms, surf and psychedelia. Canibalismo is their second album after the superb Sonido Amazonico from 2009. Their bandleader Olivier Conan has also produced the ground-breaking Roots of Chicha compilations, which we urge you to give a listen if you haven't already. Chicha is a Peruvian psychedelic surf-rock derivative of Cumbia from the late sixties, and Chicha Libre are bringing a 'modern' production treatment to the style, to the amazement of all (open) ears. We played the overly fun Wagner cover of The Ride of The Valkyries in our recent mix for the Friday Night Session radio show in California, and haven't forgotten about our podcast subscribers, since we asked Mr Conan to cook for Paris DJs a mix of Cumbia covers for our Molesting Laura series.

The latest Analog Africa reissue is up for pre-order on Bandcamp! The album, originally a 1978 release by Orchestre Poly Rythmo's singer Vincent Ahehehinnou, is rare-as-shit, worth nearly 4 figures if you can find a decent copy. There's only 4 tunes, two afrofunk monsters and two ballads, but...
