Boomkat Product Review:
Wild hybrids of cumbia and psychedelic surf licks on these ‘80s gems from the depths of the Peruvian jungle, sourced from super rare records for first international release - wigs will be flipped!
Plucked from five albums issued by Sonido Verde de Moyobamba between 1981-87, the eponymous session extends a transfixing introduction to their frankly crazed and infectiously funked up steez. Perhaps best considered as Peru’s parallel to the emergence of psychobilly garage rock ’n roll punk in the US & UK around the same time, or even Egypt/Lebanon’s Omar Khorshid, the band’s groove is nevertheless firmly rooted in the sinuous Afro-Latin percussive tradition of cumbia, but far more psychedelic and even gothic with it than we’ve ever heard, at least.
With thanks to the expert ears of Analog Africa we are now properly taken with this cherry-picked carousel highlighting their heat-seeking organs, tremulous surf guitar riffs and unmistakably party-ready sound, dusted down and remastered for bonkers soirées. It’s not hard to imagine yourself in the Amazon drinking moonshine and maybe powdering one’s nose to the heads-down rug-cutter ‘Melancholia’, lifting a leg to the fiery pace of ‘El Limoncito’ and ‘El Borracho’, getting ghoulish with it to ‘La Danza Del Vampiro’, and reeling to the eye-swivelling organ madness of ‘Maria Esther’.
