LA WEEKLY’S DAIANA FEUER Interview w/ Olivier Conan & Renz De Madrugada “THE ROOTS OF CHICHA”

Interview about THE ROOTS OF CHICHA & CHICHA IN GENERAL

w/ OLIVIER CONAN (Barbès Records)

Olivier Conan is a Frenchman from Brooklyn (as well as an avid record collector and label owner) who was trolling tiny markets in Lima, Peru, hoping to discover something new. When he stumbled upon a treasure trove of psychedelic cumbia from the 1960s and 1970s called chicha, he felt as if he’d discovered his own Beatles.

Renz De Madrugada (Listen Recovery)

Here in Los Angeles, he’s enlisted Renz “Renz De Madrugada” Revelli of local DJ collective Listen Recovery, a Peruvian transplant with a full crate of chicha records. They were happy to give L.A. Weekly a history lesson.
