Last podcast I mentioned a proposed documentary to feature the story of Peruvian and Amazonian cumbia player Ranil (Ranil y su Conjunto). He  was recently the focus of a compilation by Masstropicas, who I mistakenly credited as fronting this project, but in fact Olivier Conan (Barbes records, Roots of Chicha Vol. 1 & 2.) is heading up the project. Currently titled “Our Man in Iquitos: Pirate Radio, Politics, and Chicha in the Amazon” the project looks great if it can get produced, for more info and to find out how you can support this project check out their site here on Kickstarter.
