El Polen - "Cholo" [1972] @192 (peruvian psychefolk)

Hola! This time our plane goes thru peru. i must say since i have the mp3's of this band..i stucked on listening some songs..i am sure you will like this band too..here is copy/paste: 1972 was the year of El Polen, one of the first Andean Acid Rock groups ever. Their first lp was the soundtrack of an European movie, "El Cholo", based on the life of the Peruvian soccer player Hugo Sotil. Their music was a mixture of psych rock and andean music played on native instruments,quenas and antaras, with traditional rock instrumentation, creating a unique style where violins sounded like fuzz guitars. El Polen’ s "Cholo" and Los Jaivas "El Volantin", were the first acid folk lps from South America. You can find a very good review here Dreamy listenings.. :) Links in comments..
