August Overview: Peru
By Luis Merino / Rock Achorao'
What a barbaric month August was in Peruvian music. There were pleasant surprises in the face of somewhat hectic weeks with all the political strife taking place in the country. An amazing contrast with so many artistic events, the constant visit of international artists and the good tempo of musical releases of all rhythms and flavors. This August in particular brought with it an interesting handful of collaborations between Latin American artists that strengthen collaborative bridges and ratify that borders do not exist when it comes to making and enjoying music. Enjoy our selection as a good plate of sausages with all the creams.
Brilliance in an unquestionable chemistry. cliffs it's amazing. The collaboration of the Quito artist Mauro Samaniego with the Peruvian La Zorra Zapata is one of the outstanding premieres that August left us. A theme with a peculiar and calm nuance that confirms the quality of the talent of both proposals as a team. Nuria Zapata shows her creative spirit that keeps her composing new music, about to release cliffs, a new album with an introspective and experimental pop cut from which we have already heard cuts like Nanana and a stroke of dawn; now present cliffs, a song with which, from his intimacy, he describes a small mania of self-demand and perfection. Recommended for all tastes.
Jaze – The consequences: Juan Carlos Iwasaki La Puente continues to demonstrate his musical class in rhymes made into songs, with The consequences. Released at the end of August, the piece explains an uncomfortable situation ruled by experience, lack of patience and some conscience. Captured in a nice video clip, it puts together a succulent package of the best and freshest from Jaze.
Catervas – Labyrinth: Legendary and endless. Catervas is an emblematic Peruvian band with a renowned tour in the national underground/experimental scene. His sixth record plate, Labyrinth, is a faithful example of maintaining its roots and adapting so well to trends, achieving an impeccable balance.
Clara Yolks x Duplat – I always do what I want: SHLQQ is a manifesto of freedom, rebellion and youthful love in a bedroom pop key. The audacious souls of the young Lima singer-songwriter Clara Yolks and the Colombian artist Duplat came together to compose the soundtrack of the brave of the world.
Ademilxhora x Daske Gaitán x Pau The Kid – set fire: A theme that sets everyone on fire with the interesting proposal of three outstanding performers of the genre: Daske Gaitan, Pau The Kid and Ademilxhora. The result, Set Fire: an intense dose of pop that effectively fuses three different profiles but very well complemented from start to finish.
The festival returns One million more na, one of the shows most remembered by lovers of rap and rhythms of the urban movement, returns in an extraordinary national edition. Headlined by heavyweights like Gonzalo Genek, Janice, Vikay Kesh, Kid Flex, the aforementioned Jaze, and many more. More than a dozen artists gathered this September 25 at Arena Peru. Safety pin.
