Chicha is a beverage made from maize, sometimes fermented and sometimes not, popular in Central and South America. It’s also a Peruvian derivative of cumbia, fused with elements of psychedelic rock and surf, as well as the Peruvian highlands’ folk music/dance genre huayno. Hugely popular in the (you guessed it) ’60s, chicha music still captures the imaginations and mystical yearnings of folks across continents and generations. Comprising members of Grupo Fantasma and Brownout, ATX’s Money Chicha rep this far-out style with mind-bending alacrity, blending in their own touches of extra fuzz and raging percussion.
