Carlos Torres: “La crítica directa al sistema, en general, estuvo ausente”

Planeta acaba de publicar hace unas semanas una nueva edición de  “Demoler: el rock en el perú 1965-1975”  de Carlos Torres Rotondo, crónica en la que se intenta rescatar aquellos años en los que la juventud peruana de ese entonces, produjo la  que para muchos fue música más original e innovadora de América Latina.  En Punto y Coma pudimos conversar con él brevemente al respecto.

¿Si el rock en el Perú entre 1965 y 1975 era de altísima calidad por qué no tuvo un impacto en los demás países de la región de manera masiva?

Por supuesto tuvo impacto en el continente. En los países del Caribe y en algunos otros como Paraguay, Ecuador o Bolivia no tanto; pero en Brasil, México y Argentina se crearon escenas tan grandes como la nuestra. Los grupos mexicanos no alcanzaron un nivel musical tan alto como el nuestro, hay que decirlo.  En Chile y Uruguay no hay tantos representantes a nivel cuantitativo, pero sí a nivel cualitativo.

¿Qué tan correlacionado estuvo el rock en esa época con el apasionamiento político de dicha época?

Los músicos no fueron progresistas a nivel político y no hubo ningún acercamiento con la Nueva Izquierda. Hubo, sí, un rechazo a la dictadura velasquista que se vio expresado a nivel de letras en canciones específicas. La crítica directa al sistema, en general, estuvo ausente.

¿Cuál es la perspectiva melómana hoy en día de la significancia del rock de esa época?

Los entendidos lo valoran como una de las mejores expresiones culturales de la época; los aficionados al reggaetón desconocen su existencia.

¿Cuáles son los elementos de la escena de dicha época que perduran como tradición hasta nuestros días?

Las condiciones de producción, distribución y consumo han cambiado. Sí se han reciclado elementos musicales de la época y los nuevos músicos  han acabado por conocer la existencia de esta tradición y saben que forman parte de una continuidad.

¿Cómo ha sido la experiencia de revisitar Demoler para esta edición?

El nuevo Demoler es un nuevo libro con el mismo índice que la edición anterior. He entrevistado al cuádruple de personajes y he vuelto a hablar con los que participaron en la primera. Hay una nueva estrategia narrativa: ellos hablan de manera directa y confrontan sus distintos puntos de vista con una mediación mía mucho menor.

Finalmente, ¿Por qué no tuvimos “la banda” como Soda Stereo en Argentina o “Los prisioneros” en Chile? ¿Cuál pudo ser?

No tuvimos un gran frontman, un gran vocalista y un gran compositor de canciones pegajosas. Pudo ser Pedro Suárez Vértiz, pero como suele suceder en el Perú, pudo ser.

    Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

    Ernest Quintana, 78, was at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont when a doctor – appearing on the robot’s screen – informed him that he would die within a few days.

    A family friend wrote on social media that it was “not the way to show value and compassion to a patient“.

    The hospital says it “regrets falling short” of the family’s expectations.

    Mr Quintana died the next day.

    On how she landed on her direction in life:

    “I always knew I was meant to be working in art, I just never knew how. In school, was so confused and always switched my majors around. In 2015, I decided to take a break from school to help out at home and that’s when I discovered my passion for fashion illustration. I drew/a> an illustration of Jhene Aiko and she liked it on Instagram. It kind of grew from there.”

    Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

    Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.

    I like reading personal blogs, Mother blogs, etc. What is the very best way to find these kinds of blogs online? The best technique I have is simply adhering to favorites individuals have – going to one blog owners “faves” then the next bloggers favorites, etc … I have actually tried Google Blogsearch but all that offers me is old newspaper article, and so on. Absolutely nothing personal in any way … How do you search for individual blogs?.
