LOS ABUELOS DEL WAYKU - La Musica De Los Kechwas Lamistas: Registros Sonoros De Comunidades Nativas De Lamas

"La Música De Los Kechwas Lamistas: Registros Sonoros De Comunidades Nativas De Lamas (The Music of the Lamista Kechwas: Recordings of Native Communities of Lamas) compiles various recordings made by Los Abuelos del Wayku, a traditional group made up of the oldest musicians from the native communities of Lamas: Medardo Cachique, Reynaldo Amasifuén, Misael Amasifuén, Daniel Sangama, Remigio Sangama, and Pedro Cachique. The selection and recording process has been carried out by the Tarapoto musician and researcher Percy Alexander Flores Navarro. These performances seek to recreate the most indigenous musical performance styles of the various musical genres practiced throughout the Lamista Kechwa nation since colonial times, as well as the foreign and national musical trends incorporated by these communities during the first half of the 20th century. Thus, this album aims to be a chronicle of the historical processes that took place in the region, as well as a guide to the cultural diversity of the Peruvian Amazon. Some of the musical genres present in these recordings are: the Christmas Carol brought by the Jesuit missionaries during the 16th century; the Amazonian pandilla and the various musical forms that comprise it since colonial times; the marinera, adapted to the Andean-Amazonian ensemble at the beginning of the 20th century; rock and roll, which was reinterpreted as the Lamista twist in the middle of the last century, and many other musical genres that constitute the repertoire of traditional and popular music of the native communities of Lamas. After the success of the anthology The Fabulous Sound of Andrés Vargas Pinedo (BR 147LP, 2021), and the launch of the anthology Around the Húmisha: The music of the traditional Amazonian groups of Peru (BR 159LP), Buh Records presents this new volume, dedicated to the music of the native communities of Lamas, and this time with the launch of a collection and platform called Central Amazónica, which will be dedicated exclusively to the rescue of various musical expressions of the Peruvian Amazon. Includes extensive information and visual documentation. Compilation and notes by Percy Alexander Flores Navarro. Art by René Sánchez." - Buh Records.

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.
