CHICHA, the instantly recognizable, infectious, dancefloor-packing Peruvian music that has been exalted on compilations by labels such as Vampisoul and Tiger Milk, is a genre that may not have achieved it's worldwide rebirth if it wasn't for the efforts of one individual: And if you have ever shaken it to these pentatonic melodies fleshed out by West African rhythms and Western fuzz, then you owe gratitudes to Alfredo Villar, aka DJ Sabroso!
The artist, curator, writer and teacher is currently in Europe presenting an exhibition of Chicha poster art in France and has been integral to promoting and preserving the history and awareness of this Peruvian offshoot of Cumbia after local interest was lost in the 90s.
By collecting thousands of Chicha records and starting the legendary club series “SONIDO INCA” in his home city of Lima, Alfredo is now recognised by the Smithsonian and the Rockefeller foundation as the premiere source on this cultural inheritance, as well as accrediting Chicha as a serious topic for study.
He is also a HELL of a dj so DO NOT miss this chance to witness a part of Peruvian Chicha club culture and see Dj Sabroso live!
