Thanks to Sounds & Colours for the heads up here. This mini-documentary, produced by VICE Magazine(!) looks at the spate of killings in the Peruvian Huayno scene. The most high profile of these was the murder of Alicia Delgado last year, supposedly stabbed by an assassin hired by her lover and fellow Huayno singer Abencia Meza. As well as exploring the tragic story of Delgado’s murder (which reads like a telenovela script), the documentary offers a great insight into the folclore and Huayno scenes, their roots and key figures such as presenter Chola Chabuca and Delgado herself. There is also a little article which follows the video on Huayno sensation Dina Paucar.
