La Chicha y su Manga - Carnaval De Arequipa

We continue our virtual tour of South America via Jamendo.com. Today we are in Santiago, Chile visiting with a big band, La Chicha y su Manga. The sound is called Chicha which is a tropical Andean genre which is new to us, but we are explorers.

This tune is from a 2014 release called Con Amor y Cariño.

The group is an active part of the Bolivian/Peruvian community in Chile. Their Facebook page describes them [translation via Google]:

Chilean musical group dedicated to tropical Andean genre known as " Chicha ", " CHICHA AND MANGA " is dedicated since 2008 as the first musical group in Santiago, Chile to venture into this genre , being also involved ever since with Peruvian and Bolivian community resident in Chile , as well as in ritual contexts Andean and expressions related to gender cHICHA , so looking for the depth and significance in the musical work oriented to integration.
