Chicha is a strong alcoholic drink made from fermented maize and produced in Peru, where it is associated with ceremonial and ritual occasions. It is now an element of what is known as chicha culture, a dynamic blend of traditional Indian and modern imported styles and fashions created out of the migration of the rural poor to major cities. Chicha music has become the most popular music in Peru. It combines the traditional Andean huayno with tropical, Afro-Hispanic music and electronic instruments.
