We'll continue with the emergent Chilean indie scene later on, but now we go to the neighboring country. Let's take a listen to the 60's Peruvian rock.



* Los Saicos (1964-1966). Despite its short career, this was a very influential band. At the time, its style was really original (some call it "pre-punk"). Demolición ("Demolition") and El entierro de los gatos ("The Cats' Funeral"):



* Los Shain's (1964-1969) and Los York's (1966-1974), two outstanding bands from Lima. Rock-&-roll and Psychedelic rock.




* And a young band with a revival style: Los Protones.

I was just reading about Los Yorks last night...



Quote:
A Peruvian garage psych quartet. Their albums are now very rare. Justo A Mi Gusto is a rewrite of Paul Revere and The Raiders' Just Like Me. It can also be heard on Sons Of YMA compilation, along with Solo Estoy, one of their single tracks. Both are well worth hearing - they were among Peru's finest bands.
The Los Yorks' 68 album cover bears a striking resemblance to that of Love's Forever Changes album.
Psychedelic Prog House

Now, as I promised, Andalusian rock. How did underground meet flamenco? Let's see: Late 60's and early 70's, two American military bases in Andalusia (southern Spain): Rota (Navy) and Morón (mind the accent in the 2nd o; Air Force). It happened that the servicemen there had a good musical taste. So, through them, vinyl records containing the latest psychedelic and progressive music of the moment reached the Andalusian scene (especially the city of Seville) and influenced several local groups. As a result, unusual (and often fascinating) mixtures came up. Like these by band Smash (1968-1973):


Other significant Andalusian-rock bands:

* Triana (1974-1983): En el lago ("At the Lake", 1974) and Quiero contarte ("I Want to Tell You", 1979).


Una historia ("A Story") and Abre la puerta ("Open the Door"):



* Medina Azahara (since 1979): Paseando por la mezquita ("Walking in the Mosque", 1980) and La esquina del aire ("The Corner of the Air").

On a different topic:

* Enrique Bunbury (since 1997), former Héroes del Silencio's vocalist. Six solo albums published. Diverse styles and influences (electro-rock, jazz, cabaret, folk, etc.).

From album Radical Sonora (1997), Salomé and Alicia [expulsada al País de las Maravillas] ("Alice [expelled to Wonderland]"):



Salomé

"Me pides lo imposible ................................ You ask me for the impossible
y yo te lo concedo. ................................ and I grant it to you.
De vuelta yo te ruego así; ................................ In return I beg you like this;
respondes que me olvide. ................................ you tell me to forget it.
Los días pasan, yo me quedo ................................ Days pass by, I remain behind.
Aunque sepan tu nombre, ................................ Although they know what your name is,
no te conocen. ................................ they don't know you.

Si apareces esta noche, ................................ If you appear tonight,

esta noche te quedas. ................................ tonight you'll stay in.
¿Por qué a la luz me desprecias así? ................................ Why do you look down on me like this when it gets light?
Quizás a tí no te importe. ................................ Maybe you don't care.
Que bien amarre lo que nos une. ................................ May that what we share unite us.
Mientras pueda respirar aquí te espero. ................................ As long as I can breathe, I'll be waiting for you.

Salomé... Salomé... ................................ Salome... Salome...

Salomé... Salomé.... ................................ Salome... Salome...

Quieres que rueden cabezas, ................................ You want heads to roll,

quieres buscar al infame, ................................ you want to look for the loathsome one,
quieres que sea el verdugo así ................................ you want me to be the executioner
y quieres que sea el culpable. ................................ and you want me to be the culprit.
Aprendo los lazos del instinto. ................................ I learn about the ties of instinct.
Los días a tu lado son profesores. ................................ The days I spend with you are teachers.

Salomé... Salomé... ................................ Salome... Salome...

Salomé... Salomé... ................................ Salome... Salome...

Mataré si debo, ................................ I will kill if I must,

te ayudaré si puedo, ................................ I will help you if I can,
sólo dime qué he de hacer ................................ just tell me what I have to do
y si recuerdas tu sueño. ................................ and if you remember your dream.
Dime: ¿estoy en él? ................................ Tell me: am I within it?

Salomé... Salomé... ................................ Salome... Salome...

Salomé... Salomé... ................................ Salome... Salome...

Mataré si debo, ................................ I will kill if I must,
te ayudaré si puedo, ................................ I will help you if I can,
sólo dime qué he de hacer ................................ just tell me what I have to do
y si recuerdas tu sueño. ................................ and if you remember your dream.
Dime: ¿estoy en él? ................................... Tell me: am I within it?
"

From album Flamingos (2002), Lady Blue and Contar contigo ("Counting on You"):



(translations here and here)


Bujías para el dolor
("Candles for the Pain", 2008) and Frente a frente ("Face to Face", 2010):

Resuming work. As we said some months ago, there's a new batch of succesful Chilean musicians. Next, two well-known singer-songwriters:

Javiera Mena. Two albums released. Electropop. These songs are Primera estrella ("First Star") and Hasta la verdad ("Till the Truth"):




Gepe. Eclectic sound (he combines different pop and folk styles).

^ If you have many songs to show, perhaps it would be better to start a specific thread about it. Even better: a thread about music sung in indigenous languages of the Americas. That is, from the whole American continent, including North America.

There are many forms and contents of Indigenous-language music. There's even Baroque music (for instance, Xicochi Conetzintle, a villancico sung in Nahuatl).
