This is a petition letter that we have spreading among our contact lists. It is necessary that we can disseminate it as much as we can. The list of poeple who have joint our project is also included in this post. We will join forces and wil attract the attention of the media if we collect more signatures.

PETITION: Bob Dylan in Peru – South American tour 2008

This letter pretend to spread a blog that reflects a petitory for Bob Dylan to come to Peru.

Bob Dylan in Peru

(Spanish version) Bob Dylan en Peru

As it is known, Bob will be on tour next february and Peru is one of the countries not included (as always) in the list of countries that will luckily will have the Master in their stages. Argentina, Brasil, Uruguay, Chile y México have already confirmed shows.

I know that who write this is a Dylan fan but I think that, achieving this goal through a blog, goes on besides a personal dream. If a big singer, band, painter or sport player with worldwide recognition thinks in doing a Latin American tour, the same countries will be the first ones in have him among them.

Peru is outside of the World cultural map from decades. With some great exceptions (Roger Waters, Yes, to mention some of them) always, who have visited us are outdated groups and out of routine. And not to say about those one-album-artists that sound so loud in poor radio stations, or that ones who issue one fashionable song that people will forget soon, but here will be always well received. They always get a place in our stages.

We have to change the story and to do something important that set our country in the Worldwide panorama. Let’s erase, through this Project, the idea they have about us like a delayed banana-country whose people lives inside ourselves running behind their own tails.

The blog is oponed and who wants to write about this topic can send me to my mails their reports, articles, chronicles, comment, Photo or videos and I will upload on it with its respective signature.

Also you can send me your complete name and location to make the signature list that will be distributed among the media to pay their attention about this cause (with copy to your contacts and to me).

My emails:

You can click in the “Demand it” button-link (at the bottom of the blog) where I have booked my asking and maybe through this way we can collect more signatures. And, if you disagree with this purpose, please only spread this request among your contacts.

Thanks for your time and hope your help

The taxes barrier

María Iribarne

A topic that was on top long time ago, and was the central point in Peruvian media lately, is about the taxes that is applied to all shows considered non cultural or non artistic.

This charges was so varied and so expensives, compared to other countries, that they represented an important barrier when someone wanted to organize a mega-show in our country.

It is known that city hall governments of Peru used to collect for these shows (which were considered as “any cultural interest-events”, and, therefore, they were affected with taxes) 15% of the total collecting, plus the so called “Impuesto a la renta” (income tax) for all artist who doesn`t live here (30%), also, the Peruvian Association of Authors and Composers (APDAYC for its initials in Spanish) collects a percentage for the copyright (6%).

Its also included 19% for the selling tax (Impuesto General a las Ventas) and this kind of megashows doesn’t escape of it (but folk concerts does, for example).

Actually and thanks to a law project created and impulsed for the congress-woman Luciana León, the city hall tax was eliminated and the incoming tax was reduced to 15%.

There is no doubt that her idea had a lot of acceptance, and have had had a happy history that contrasted the idea that people don’t enjoy the big shows while the rest of the world does. And here, there are some examples: Börk, Toto and Soda Stereo (this last band from Argentina) performed in Lima in December 2007. Also, we can mention the big amount of people (more than 10 000 souls) that filled the Monumental arena for the wonderful show that Roger Waters gave in march 2007.

However, beside all this auspicious causes that could change the cultural scenary of Peru, it is mandatory that the State, through its cultural institutions, promote this kind of shows. And there was a big step done: the president García, in December, stated in favor of this kind of shows and the reduction of the taxes; but beside this, it is necessary the promotion of our country as a cultural showcase, as a country where people enjoy and understand the importance of this events that enrich the way of thinking of a community who share it.

And finally, understand that rock music is inside in the category of cultural interest – shows, as much as ballet or classical music. Rock music is not seen anymore like a hippies and hobos and delinquent – music in any part of the world.

As the musician Gerardo Manuel said, rock is culture. And who is not able to accept this undeniable truth is, definetly out of time.

The Ignored Peru

Errased from the artistic and musical map, here it is a resumé about who pass only next to us

Carla Vanessa

For a reason or another, or maybe for the same reason (we are not business place for big artists) Peru is always outside of the cultural map of the world. When an important singer or band looks to South America to plan a visit, they only see Mexico, Argentina, Brasil and sometimes Chile, like possible places to perform. Curiously the countries who form the Andian region are put aside.

Here is a list of artist / groups who have come only nex to Peru. Maybe you, dear readers, can complete it:

U2 (and with an embarrassing story ; the showed in their big screens, in a concert in Buenos Aires, a list with all south American countries, with their flags and all, except Peru)

Paul Mc Cartney
Rod Stewart (he cancelled at last minute)
Michael Jackson (personally i hate his music but I include him because he represent the pop music and culture of the 80s – also cancelled at last minute)The Rolling Stones
Bob Dylan (He came to Chile in a anti – Pinochet concert in 1993, in a Rolling Stone tour as invited artist in Buenos Aires, 1998m and If my memory doesn’t fail me, performed in a Rock in Rio concert).

And more names will follow….

Why Peru can’t have Bob Dylan in concert?

Iván Barrionuevo L.

Bob Dylan the great american songwiter has trascended the limits of the music. Nominated to the Nobel Prize of Literature and winner of Principe de Asturias Prize, Dylan has mixed song and poetry in a masterpiece that determinate the sentimental education of millions of people. Also he has been a reflex of a spirit of an era that looks for the answers in the wind.

Dylan is not only a musician and songwirte but a poet and writer and his lyrics became in a catalyzer of the social concerns of America in the 60s and was crownded as one of the referents of the pop culture in the last fifty years.

Bob Dylan will start a south American tour and Peru can’t miss that chance. The fans of Bob Dylan in Peru are more than thousands of people. The point is that, this people have a good cultural formation, lots of them are opinión leaders and selective with their musical choices.I t’s true that Bob Dylan is not a massive artist here, but he can gather a lot of people who will be ready to pay even to hear some words from him. Let’s not forget that he is a living legend of the folk rock.

We won’t have another Dylan and maybe Peru won’t have another chance to have him in our stages, singing and playing his wonderful lyrics: God hear to us and bring us the great Bob
