Album Notes
“If you are wondering what the Beatles music fused with
Afro-Peruvian rhythms sounds like, this recording will
come as a surprising revelation. A pleasure from beginning
to end!”
– Julio Garcia BBC Mundo

Song-o-sau’rus Records is pleased to present guitarist Richie
Zellon’s first US recording in nearly a decade, “The Beatles:
An Afro-Peruvian Jazz Tribute”. Coinciding with the fiftieth
anniversary of the group’s historical first recording for EMI,
the CD features fellow Miami transplants and Grammy Award
winners, violinist Federico Britos and saxophonist Ed Calle, as
well as Cuban classical and jazz guitarist Enrique Gardano, and
Peruvian percussionists Alfredo Valiente & Cesar Ballumbrosio.
In addition to the 9 selections authored by Lennon, McCartney and Harrison, the CD includes “Serenata
en Lando”, a piece written by Zellon in memory of his mentor, the late renowned Afro-peruvian
guitarist and composer Felix Casaverde, who in 1981 accompanied him on his first recording (“Landologia”).

Acclaimed by the press in Peru:

“Although many are unaware, thirty years ago Lima born guitarist Richie Zellon invented Afro-Peruvian
jazz ... Today we are reminded of this with his tribute to Liverpool’s Fab Four in the style of Peru’s creole
waltz, marinera, festejo and landó . It is an unparalleled experience… Lennon and McCartney could
well have played the jawbone and the cajón ... sounds like The Afro-Peruvian Beatles. This is not the
work of a magician. It is the work of an artist, a visionary. Listen my friend! “
La Republica (Lima)

“Zellon gives the Beatles’ repertoire the Afro-Peruvian treatment. The result is impressive for being
respectful and daring at the same time ... The thought of introducing an Indian drone in ‘Can’t Buy
Me Love’ or transforming the experimental ‘Tomorrow Never Knows “into a marinera (Peru’s national
dance) cannot go unnoticed. “
-Diario Oficial El Peruano (Lima)

“Recommended…Technically Impeccable.”
El Comercio (Lima)

“When we speak of fusion in Peru, the name of Richie Zellon is prominent ... ‘Beatles Afro-Peruvian
Jazz Tribute’, his latest album continues in the vein of fusion that he began in 1981.”
La Primera (Lima)
