Peru’s tropical fusion combo Bareto have been playing music together since 2003, at first starting with a fusion of rock, reggae and Peruvian styles, before their love for Peruvian cumbia (or chicha) overtook all else. This culminated in 2008’s Cumbia, an album covering the classic chicha tracks of the 60s and 70s, and then 2012’s Ves Lo Que Quieres Ver, their first full-length devoted to original self-written cumbias. “La Voz Del Sinchi” continues very much in this vein with guitars tuned to the psych-out dial and a languid cumbia groove giving the track its unmistakeable bounce.
“La Voz Del Sinchi” was inspired by a character from Mario Vargas Llosa’s novel Pantaleón y Las Visitadoras and will appear on their as-yet-untitled fourth album, which has been produced by Felipe Álvarez (Polen Records) and mixed by Richard Blair (Sidestepper).

Peru has become a world music hotspot, its loping cumbia rhythms cross-pollinating with surf guitar (a longstanding passion in Amazonian Peru) and assorted electronica. Bareto, the country’s leading “tropical” band, touch all bases on this fifth album and first international release, mixing the mega-twang of surf guitar on instrumentals like La Voz del Sinchi with dreamy acoustica on El Loco, the latter featuring singer Susana Baca, the country’s most celebrated musical export. They also have a cool way with reggae, stretching into shimmering dub on Viejita Guarachera. Add squeaky Casio keyboards and the mixing skills of Sidestepper’s Richard Blair, and you have a soundtrack that’s both retro space-age and engagingly futurist. (by Guardian)
