Praised as heirs of amazonic psychedelia and chicha traditions, as well as sound innovators, peruvian band Bareto mix exciting versions of cumbia clasics with their own, unique compositions, in concerts that should be promoted as dance parties. Performers at Womex 2016, have toured Europe and North America, including Roskilde Festival 2015 and Montreal Jazz Festival 2017, among others.
Recorded just before the Covid pandemic between Lima and Bogotá, “El amor no es para los débiles” is Bareto’s second effort with Colombian producer Felipe Álvarez.
The album marks the debut of singer Javier Arias in duets with some renown peruvian figures such as creole diva Bartola and technocumbia queen Rossy War. The album also features sonero and comedian Melcochita, and a bunch of Colombian guests, including singer María del Rosario Cardona and percussionist Chongo. The first single is “Tu Recuerdo”, a song that mixes cumbia with an Andean flavor. The promotional video is based in drawings by artist Amadeo Gonzalez, who also is responsible for the album artwork.
Both their last two records of original material,“Ves lo que quieres ver” (“You see what you want to see”, 2013) and “Impredecible”(“Impredictable”
