Producción científica: Informe/libroLibrorevisión exhaustiva


In the late 1960s, a new musical genre-the most important to have been created by popular musicians in the country in recent years-appeared in Peru: chicha music. In this essay, I analyze sociocultural processes shaping the ongoing construction of the national scene of chicha music in Peru. In agreement with Bennett and Peterson, I define musical scenes as the contexts in which clusters of producers, musicians, and fans collectively share their common musical tastes and collectively distinguish themselves from others (Bennett and Peterson 2004, 1).
