Biography

Bareto was born in 2003 as an instrumental group. In 2005, an EP called Ombligo was released. The next year was the time for their first LP, Boleto, with original songs that combine jamaican reggae and ska with some cumbia and latin flavor.

In 2008, Bareto released Cumbia, their second LP. It contains instrumental covers of the late Juaneco y su combo (a psicodelic cumbia group from the seventies) songs. Their fresh interpretations of classical songs (for the peruvian market) like "Ya se ha muerto mi abuelo" and "Mujer Hilandera" where suddenly at the top of the charts nationwide.

The group toured all over Perú for the next two years. They earned a Gold Record for major sales, in a country where music piracy reign all over, and they recieved several awards, including Best Peruvian/Fusion Album by El Comercio, the most important national newspaper.
Complete Bareto Band in White

In 2010, Bareto released another EP, Sodoma y Gamarra, which contains two more great hits for the band: "No juegue con el diablo" (an old cuban song rearranged by the group) and "Cariñito" (originally from peruvian folk-cumbia legends Los hijos del Sol). This EP also contains some original material, like the song "La distancia" (a duet with peruvian folklore diva Dina Paucar) and the instrumentals Ceja de Selva and Sodoma y Gamarra.
Bareto Playing Live

April 2012 is the date set for the release of Bareto's latest LP: Ves lo que quieres ver (in english: "you see just what you want to see". Now we find ten songs written by the group, in their first time working with a music producer (Miami based Manuel Garrido-Lecca), mixing cumbia, reggae, psychedelia and dub, among other latin generes. The lyrics talk about how peruvians have to deal with their differences as society (in Perú, every city is like a little country) to keep the machine going, in a context of prosperity… at least as the macroeconomic numbers say.
