    Great interview and music.
    As I was listenig the songs of Don Chicharron and Los Wembles, I could not stop imagining one of my first trips into the Amazon jungle of Peru. Being there is
    Ike you are in a different planet, you are navegating in a boat in the middle of the a river that you never imagine can hold so much water, and you hear those sounds of nature, the birds, the flow of the river, Everyday you stop at a small town, and it does not matter what time of the day is it, the whole city wakes up, the chicha music is played through large speakers, and the visitor from the boat are welcomed into town.
    It is for me hard to believe, that these boys have captured the soul of the musical from the indigenosu people from that part of the world. Congratulations
