About Chicha Libre
Chicha Libre plays a mixture of latin rhythms, surf and psychedelic pop inspired by peruvian music from Lima and the Amazon. The Brooklyn collective is made up of French, American, Venezuelan and Mexican musicians who mix up covers of Peruvian chicha with original compositions in French, Spanish and English, re-interpretation of 1970s pop classics as well as cumbia versions of pieces by the likes of Erik Satie, Love and Richard Wagner. The group draws its personnel from Barbes regulars Bebe Eiffel, One Ring Zero and Las Rubias Del Norte. Read more about Chicha Libre on Last.fm.
