Cumbia Beat Volume 3

Fifty years after the release of one of the founding records of the genre known as Peruvian cumbia (by guitar players Enrique Delgado Montes and Berardo Hernández Manzanita), Vampisoul presents this third volume in the series Cumbia Beat, which brings together 45 rpm rarities from acclaimed groups, short-lived bands and outstanding huaycumbias. Like the previous volumes in this series, listening to this record takes you on a journey across the geography of Peru, as the majority of the groups on this collection were from different regions of the country, or had close links to them, although all of the artists recorded in Lima. Most of the bands emerged during the period 1968-1980, a time of deep political and social change implemented by the nationalist military dictatorship. Los Demonios del Mantaro, Los Demonios de Corocochay and Los 5 Palomillas are the exceptions to this, as they recorded between 1965 and 1967 and produced a hybrid of cumbia and huayno called huaycumbia, a genre which achieved high sales figures during those years.Despite the characteristics of huaycumbia, the early composers of Peruvian cumbia didnt consider it a direct source of inspiration. They admit to being more influenced by Colombian cumbia, Cuban guaracha, beat and psychedelic music from the UK and US that they had played since the end of the 60s, in their own style, as a part of a musical appropriation process that quickly led them to forge a singular sound.
