Bareto

Bareto are one of the most influential Peruvian bands of their generation. In contrast to many successful acts that favour a more mainstream style, they have delved deeply into the roots of their native music, with a signature sound reminiscent of the psychedelic-meets-Amazonian music once popular in Peru.  Chicha, or Peruvian Psychedelic Cumbia, has had a massive revival during the last decade and Bareto have played a key role in this.  The group’s latest (2015) album, Impredecible, is even more eclectic, taking listeners beyond instrumental cumbia to a deep dub atmosphere as well as to festejo (a festive form of Afro-Peruvian music).  This recording has also been the opportunity for Bareto to include more electronic elements, thanks to state-of-the-art production from Felipe Alvarez (Polen Records, Colombia).
