Silbando (GRC Remix For NYC Trust)

by Los Ribereños and Greenwood Rhythm Coalition

  • Streaming + Download

    Very excited about this one! Barbes Records has exclusively licensed Electric Cowbell Records a song from the new Roots of Chicha ll complilation. Chicha is essentially a sort of psychedelic cumbia-based music from the Amazon basin in Peru. Incessant twangy surf guitar playing montunos alongside propulsive, percolating percussion is the modus operandi of a chicha group. On side A we have the hauntingly beautiful track by Los Ribereños "Silbando" that gets a tasty remix on the B-side by Brooklyn's Greenwood Rhythm Coalition for NYC Trust. Los Ribereños, led by Jhon Beny, was another Peruvian 60s band which specialized in a mostly Cuban repertoire but gave it what we can, in retrospect, call a chicha twist. A the time of this recording, chicha was getting a little more syncretic, with an occasional Andean flavor, but guaracha (a mid-20th century Cuban style of music) remained its strongest element....and this chicha-infused 45 is destined to be a world-class psych burner classic!

      $1.29 USD



Because of a special licensing agreement between Barbes Records and Electric Cowbell, we can only offer the tasty remix version of 'Silbando' here on our site. If you have not picked up copies of either Roots of Chicha 1 or Roots of Chicha 2, do yourself a favor and get them now! They're amazing Barbes Records compilations of some of the finest chicha music produced in Peru.
