Black Sugar - Funky Man

Peruvian group Los Far Fen, whose name was inspired by the Farfisa and Fender Rhodes organs, later morphed into what is now known as Black Sugar. Black Sugar could be viewed in an antithetical, progressive context when compared with most Peruvian music and the sociopolitical climate of the times (in 1971, the year of the eponymous debut). At the time, Peru was governed by the leftist militaristic regime of Juan Francisco Velasco Alvarado. Although mostly apolitical, Black Sugar's music for the Sono Radio label was a strong statement of individual freedom in a climate of censorship and propaganda. Another artist on the label, Jaime Delgado Aparicio, worked in more of a jazz-bossa nova style. Both Black Sugar albums have been reissued on the Italy-based Get Back label.

Black Sugar Personnel:

Victor "Coco" Salazar....lead guitar, percussion
Miguel "Chino" Figueroa....organ and keyboards
Roberto Valdez....bass
Jose "Arrocito" Cruz....drums
Antonio Ginocchio....trumpet and vocals
Luis Calixto....trombon and vocals
Pedro Gosicha....alto sax and flute
Jorge Chavez....tenor sax and flute
Coco Lagos....congas and latin percussion
Carlos "Pacho" Mejia....lead vocals

The year is 1971, and this cut by the Peruvian group is from their first self-titled LP on the SonoRadio label.
