EXCLUSIVE: Bareto “La Voz Del Sinchi” (Free D/L)

By 05 December, 2014

Peru’s tropical fusion combo Bareto are back with a new single, “La Voz Del Sinchi”, a first taste from their upcoming fourth album.

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).
