@Vice THUMP HEADS TO LIMA IN LATEST EPISODE OF SUB.CULTURE




THUMP heads to Lima in the latest installment from its Sub.culture series to explore the Peruvian resurgence of the digital cumbia musical movement. In the episode, THUMP meets the cast of DJs, producers, label managers, and promoters who are reinvigorating the historic sound.

 With roots in Amazonian communities and a history that dates back to the earliest periods of slavery and colonization, the cumbia sound tells the story of an entire continent. “Just like Detroit has techno and Chicago has house, Lima has this new sound that’s growing,” says Deltatron, a central figure from the Peruvian label Terror Negro. “It’s a rhythm that unifies all of Latin America.”

Young producers mixing digital cumbia in their Lima-based studios are drawing from a dense history of Peruvian cumbia that dates back to the 1960s. THUMP met the man behind INFOPESA, the “emblematic Peruvian cumbia record label,” who took us beyond the resurgent digital sound to explore the movement's origins.
