SKU: VAMPI45081 Categories: ,


Austin-based future-cumbia group Money Chicha presents a fascinating exploration of the nexus of Peru’s legendary fuzzed-out early chicha sound and the band’s unique application of chicha-influenced sounds to their own original compositions. ‘Maria Teresa’, a song written by Roberto Zavala and brought to fame by Chacalon, is on the A side of this new single while we find ‘Cumbia del Desierto’ on the flipside, an instrumental classic by Los Destellos that Money Chicha recreates here in a faithful yet updated and energetic manner. This single anticipates their forthcoming new album that will include guest collaborations with Peruvian legend Jose Luis Carballo (Chacalon/La Nueva Crema) and Colombian-American vocalist Kiko Villamizar as well as Nemegata frontman Victor Cruz on percussion.
