about

Shika Shika is proud to present ‘Picaflor’, the new album by Argentine percussionist and composer Martin Bruhn. Filled with colour and festivity, this new release takes us on a journey to Peru’s Mantaro region and is a heartfelt homage to the Huanca music and culture.

Recorded during the first year of the pandemic in Martin’s home studio, it has a beautifully simple, almost Lo-Fi aesthetic to it, which pays tribute to and resembles the original vinyl recordings of the andean region’s huayno orchestras.

In Martin’s own words:
"There are commendations, homages and dedications, call it whatever you want, but I like to think of this album as a celebration. PICAFLOR tries to go beyond a simple search for musical similarities. It pays tribute to a certain sonic aesthetic, to the orchestral originality and the great simplicity of this music. It is an ode to the greats: Picaflor de Los Andes, Flor Pucarina, Zenobio Dagna, the Ases de Huancayo orchestra, to Charlie de la Cruz Palomino and to so many others I do not know.

In short, this album represents the constant search for my own carnival and this time I am happy to invite the rest of the world to join this great fiesta."

ES
Shika Shika se enorgullece en presentar un nuevo álbum del percusionista y compositor argentino Martin Bruhn. Un sentido homenaje a la música y cultura Huanca. Lleno de color y festividad este nuevo trabajo del músico cordobés sobrevuela la región del Mantaro, Perú. Grabado durante el primer año de pandemia de forma muy simple, casi Lo-Fi, Bruhn logra conectar en toda forma al sonido y timbre de aquellos vinilos de huaynos de la región andina.

En sus palabras:

“Existen distinciones, veneraciones o dedicatorias, pónganle el nombre que quiera, pero este disco es una celebración en forma de homenaje. PICAFLOR está lejos de buscar semejanzas. Diría que es un juramento de culto a la fuerza popular, a la esencia sonora, a la originalidad orquestal y a la simpleza mayor; es el respeto para algunos referentes como Picaflor de Los Andes, Flor Pucarina, Zenobio Dagna, la orquesta Ases de Huancayo, a Charlie de la Cruz Palomino y a los tantos otros que no conozco (que serán miles y más).

En pocas palabras: es la búsqueda constante de mi propio carnaval. Me alegra ser pregonero de esta gran fiesta.”

Martin Bruhn
