Various Artists: The Warrior Women Of Afro-Peruvian Music

The Warrior Women Of Afro-Peruvian Music is a new project based out of Peru. The project emphasizes the prejudice and sexism in that country and how difficult it is for women to express their craft. With the help of Just Play Peru, this issue is tackled head on bringing much needed light on the issue. The band features a variety of singers and musicians as the music leans heavily on Africa and Peru’s musical culture. Exotic percussion instruments, heavy bass, tasty acoustic and electric guitar and fantastic vocals forms the foundation of this music. A laid back and chilled vibe course through many of these songs like in the album opening “Tumba y Cajón”. Awesome bass, floating Rhodes piano, delightful harmonica and catchy vocal melodies make this one pretty irresistible. The acoustic guitar in “Es Amador” plays on the band’s African/Peruvian folk heritage and the lovely acoustic guitar in “Santa Libertad” are more choice cuts. The jazzy piano in “Tinkalamina” is another highlight.

Excellent musicianship and vocals makes this an outstanding slice of world music with melodies that will stick with you for days. Recommended.
