V/A - Alrededor De La Humisha: La Musica De Los Conjuntos Tipicos Amazonicos De Peru

"Around the Húmisha: The music of the traditional Amazonian ensembles of Peru is a compilation that brings together for the first-time various groups formed between the mid-60s and early '80s, which defined the sound of the popular music that emerged in the Peruvian jungle. Here, genres of indigenous Amazonian roots are represented, such as the pandilla, the chimaychi, and the sitaracuy, which are typically performed in carnivals and regional Amazonian festivals. These gatherings always culminate around a húmisha tree, a representative element of these celebrations, which is surrounded by a troupe of dancers who cut it down to the rhythm of a pandilla. Based on these native genres, these traditional ensembles were nurtured by diverse influences, coming from the Andes (huaynos), the Peruvian coast (creole waltzes), as well as from neighboring countries such as Brazil (samba, tanguiño), Colombia (cumbia), and Ecuador (sanjuanitos). The music is performed using the traditional instrumentation of quena, bass drum, and snare drum, sometimes supplemented with violin, clarinet, saxophone, guitar, and maracas. This compilation brings together songs from Conjunto Selva AlegreFlor del Oriente y su ConjuntoLos GuacamayosLos SolteritosDúo LoretoLos Pihuichos de la SelvaLos Ribereños del HuallagaConjunto Esperanza de San MartínConjunto Típico Corazón de la SelvaJibarito de la Selva con Los Mensajeros de la Selva, and Los Hijos de Lamas. These groups released records on the main Peruvian labels of the '70s and '80s; today, those albums are true collector's gems, hard to come by. Here we find some indisputable classics from the Amazonian repertoire such as "La leyenda del pífano" by Adolfo Sandoval in the masterful interpretation of the Dúo Loreto, "El Pucacuro" by the Amazonian diva Flor del Oriente, the highly popular "Salta Yanasita" by the Conjunto Selva Alegre, as well as the classic "Alegría en la selva" by the Conjunto Típico Corazón de la Selva, a true Amazonian anthem. Following the success of the anthology The Fabulous Sound of Andrés Vargas Pinedo (BR 147LP, 2021), and the launch of The Music of the Lamista Kechwas: Recordings of the Native Communities of Lamas (BR 163LP), Buh Records presents this new volume dedicated to exploring this fascinating universe of traditional music from the Amazonian jungle. Features extensive information and visual documentation. Compilation and notes by Luis Alvarado. Art by René Sánchez. Also features Eliseo Reátegui y Los SolteritosJibarito de la Selva, and Los Hijos de Lamas." - Buh.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
