CHICHA LIBRE #7 in the World Music Charts Europe

CHICHA LIBRE #7 in the World Music Charts Europe


Chicha Libre draw their inspiration from... Chicha, a form of Peruvian music that emerged from the Amazon in the early '70s, loosely derived from Colombian accordion-driven cumbias but incorporating distinctive Andean melodies, some Cuban son and heady swirls of surf guitar, farfisa organ and moog synth. All in all, a sound which wouldn't seem out of place in the soundtrack of a Tarantino movie.

Soon out: "Ex-Futur Album" by Veronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul

At the extreme pop end of Aksak Maboul's broad musical spectrum, an album will soon be coming out with a slight delay of… 30 years!
Recorded by Aksak Maboul and (Honeymoon Killers singer) Véronique Vincent in 1982-83, it was announced in the very first Crammed catalogue, back in '81, but has remained unfinished.

Entitled "Ex-Future Album", it will consist of demos & rough mixes (some salvaged from cassette tapes), and will come out in September 2014, on CD, vinyl and digital.
