New Sounds Of Peru Playlist #8

By | 02 July, 2020

It’s now been more than 100 days since quarantine and the beginning of a State of Emergencyin Peru. Our government has barely begun to address how the music industry has been crushed by the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving us to handle the situation and our losses by ourselves. We’ve now lost too many of our masters not to be angry and desperate. On June 20th, only four days before the San Juan celebration (the most important festival in the Peruvian selva), Tulio Trigozo lost his life to COVID-19. He was the founder of the cumbia rock orchestra Sonido 2000, which has been a staple of that particular brand of cumbia for more than 30 years ago. He had retired, but his daughter Cheryl and son Tulín kept the band alive. Sadly, both of them also have the virus, and their mother too. [Raul ‘Ranil’ Llerena and two members of another cumbia band, Los Wembler’s, also died during the pandemic – editor’s note]. We are incredibly sad and it feels like we somehow have to find some normality through all this chaos. We are getting too used to waking up and learn someone else we love, or even know from afar, aren’t here anymore. Life is just passing by, and we desperately need to find the strength to keep our will alive. These songs are helping us to do that.
