The Bacanos they became known for their memorable songs “I give you my love”, “Without wanting”, among others. This Venezuelan group, made up of Taco Bozo and Heli Arraga, has a great connection with Peru, since they decided to start over after the socio-political crisis in their country.
These artists left their land in search of opportunities to continue their musical careers and found stability. Despite the circumstances, they released a new album entitled Noche bacana in the midst of the pandemic.
In an interview with La República, Bacanos They said that they are getting ready for a tour of the United States and thanked the Peruvians for their welcome. In addition, they assured that they will not fall into writing vulgar letters to be recognized.
-What is the secret of so many years of existence of the Bacanos?
Taco Bozo: Actually, there is no exact secret, but the desire to do what we like, which is music. Los Bacanos has 25 years of musical experience, we continue to work on our feet, we have already lived in Lima for three years, we have done very well despite the pandemic. Now we have projects in the United States, we hope it will be activated (the face-to-face concerts) in Peru.
The secret is to keep your feet on the ground, make good music, be at the forefront of what is playing, but without losing the essence of what Bacanos is, singing to love, joy. That has been part of the secret to keep us.
-For you, how has been the great blow that the entertainment industry has received due to the pandemic?
Heli Arraga: The blow has been noticed and how everything has changed. Now the concerts are virtual, but in the case of the United States that part of the shows has been activated more, obviously with all the regulations, a smaller space. With regard to Peru, it is still very paralyzed. I think everyone has had to reinvent themselves, look for other countries, in South America they enter a quarantine, leave and return. There are many changes and we live from this, not complaining, but looking for solutions to problems.
-They have released their album Noche bacana, where the accordion still predominates.
Taco: Noche bacana is an album that we released in the middle of the pandemic. In the eleven songs our tropical musical essence continues to predominate. We have always had our hallmark, which is the accordion, to maintain that line that has always led us to success. We recently released two feats with Peruvian artists, who are of the urban genre, which are sounding very good on digital platforms.
-Bacanos takes care of the content of his songs, what opinion do you have about the denigrating lyrics in reggaeton?
Taco: In our lyrics we have always carried a line that does not exceed vulgarity. We have nothing against them (reggaeton genre), but we do not share the issue of reaching vulgarity by trying to get more likes or fans. We continue to carry our line, our lyrics are based on transmitting love and joy. I don’t think we’ll get to the point of making vulgar lyrics to get a new hit, although we respect whoever does it..
-How is it for an artist to stay optimistic in the middle of a crisis?
Heli: I think that, for an artist, when you dedicate yourself to something that comes from your heart, everything flows. Obviously we are human beings and we have our moments of anguish, you worry about the future of your children. One always tries to digest everything, look for the positive side and carry a positive message of joy to all who follow us.
-How has the experience of virtual concerts been for you?
Taco: We have definitely had to evolve like everyone else, I think that 90% of artists do not find this subject of virtual concerts. For me it is something empty, as if I were singing to a wall, it is nothing like feeling the heat, the screams, the joy, the adrenaline of the people. An artist who is not up to date with the subject of digital platforms disappears completely, hopefully we return to normality.
-Your songs have been well received in our country, what does Peru mean to you?
We don’t want to say it to look good, but with all our hearts we owe him a lot. The affection that they always give us, in the concerts that we had been doing before the pandemic. We decided to settle in Peru because of the issue that we all know about Venezuela, which has affected the whole world, because of the affection of the people and because Peru is looking to growth. What is happening (in Venezuela) is not compared to any country in Latin America, which serves as an example for other countries. Venezuela is a great example for everyone, that is why Peru is very special, not only because of how beautiful the country is or how delicious it is, but because of the affection of its people.
-What would you say to the Venezuelans who left the country to seek a better future?
Taco: There are two types of Venezuelans at this time, those who stayed to continue fighting, believe in that country, and those who seek other borders for a better quality of life. I know that the majority of Venezuelans are good people, there are also people who do things badly. Most of us went to other countries to contribute culture, studies, work. For me they are cycles in the world, when Venezuela was well, many Peruvians went there. Unfortunately we have had 20 years of bad life.
