Juan Campos (pictured above) is a bad hombre — he’s from the southside of Richmond and he plays music from the Peruvian Amazon; he takes the electric accordion to outer space and beyond.
In real life, Juan Campos is Joshua Camp: ex-Richmonder currently based in Brooklyn, founder of the bands One Ring Zero and Chicha Libre, a solo artist under the name C.A.M.P.O.S. (short for Cumbias And More Psychedelic Original Sounds), and he’s also the video artist who calls himself Croaker Norge (shoutout to I-64 exit 231).
Joshua Camp joins me in WRIR’s Studio C this week to play C.A.M.P.O.S. music with Coco Barez (Bio Ritmo) and Gary Kalar (Yeni Nostalji) and to talk about the many projects he’s working on. I’ll spin some of his recordings beforehand; after that, who knows where we’ll go?
