1. Product Details

Vampisoul present a reissue of Per Negros self-titled album sub-titled Gran Premio Del Festival Hispanoamericano de la Danza y La Cancion originally released in 1973. Afro-Peruvian music also known as msica criolla finds its roots in West African music Spanish and European genres and native musical traditions from Peru. Flamenco-influenced sounds sit next to African tribal elements and a simple yet effective percussion instrument called cajn. After a long struggle to preserve msica criolla through oral tradition over generations actually resulting in much of the original music being lost a renewed interest in those rhythms and melodies arose in the 1950s. Some years later the legendary Peruvian singer Chabuca Granda provided help to promote Per Negro a dance company that also incorporated percussion combined with msica criolla. Ronaldo Campos Lalo Izquierdo Vctor Padilla Rodolfo Arteaga and Caitro Soto among others played a key role in the foundation and early days of the company. Their shows celebrated and recreated black culture in Peru and they quickly became regulars at Limas theaters. In 1969 they won the main award at the Festival Hispanoamericano de la Danza y la Cancin in Argentina. The repertoire performed at the festival was later included in this album originally released in 1973 in Peru and Spain only. The lyrics and music of these songs reflect the countrys multicultural diversity blending elements from the African tradition and echoes of Spanish-influenced melodies around stories of slavery days rural labor and folklore. Although lesser known than music from other nearby countries Peru Negros recordings are reminiscent of Afro-Colombian or Afro-Cuban rhythms. If you have an interest in Cuban son or Colombian bambuco this record will be an essential addition to your collection and the perfect introduction to the fascinating msica criolla. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
