The cover feature from the January 2010 issue of Creative Review was all about Chicha, a musical style popular in Peru, and the visual style used to promote the music across the country. In this film, produced for CR by Jules Bay (Curator at the Spanish Cultural Center in Lima), printer Eliot Urcuhuaranga (who created the cover artwork for the issue) explains the background of Chicha and Cumbia music, and how his family came to specialise in the distinctive style of print employed to promote it.
