ANDINA – The Sound of the Peruvian Andes 1968-1978

{. Aquí hacemos música con cariño. }

A window into the full-blooded, captivating spirit of music from the Andes, ANDINA shines a fresh perspective on Peru’s Andean heritage. The 17 track album is selected from records released between ‘68 and ‘78, upending clichéd ideas of Andean music and bringing to light the divergent, exciting traditions to have emerged from Peru’s strip of the iconic mountain range.

Bass, Bleeps & Bumps from Peru’s Electronic Underground

Boom! Belt up and prepare for ascent. This bass heavy and potent collection features the key Peruvian producers and DJs that have helped build Lima’s reputation as ‘jewel in the crown’ of South America’s rave & party scenes.

Tropical bass artists like Dengue Dengue Dengue, Chakruna, Animal Chuki and Deltatron have long been guided by the roots of chicha and Peruvian cumbia. This sees them reshape and digitally render the original sounds fashioning new cuts inspired by dubstep, techno, trap, grime, house and electronica all aimed squarely at the dancefloor.

Peru Boom celebrates one of the most vibrant contemporary club scenes in the world.

Funk, Soul & Psych from Peru’s Radical Decade

tells the whirlwind story of a culture in flux when, during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, Lima boasted dozens of young bands full of ideas, spontaneous and unfazed by the instability in Peru. Featuring alternative heroes Traffic Sound and Laghonia alongside a selection of unheralded short-lived groups, Peru Bravo is a funk-fuelled ride through a radical decade.

It would however, only be a matter of years before this movement disappeared just as quickly as it had arrived as a new, uncompromising military dictatorship, led by General Juan Velasco Alvarado, took hold.

It features 15 tracks and unearths the full spectrum of incendiary underground funk, soul and psych sounds between 1968 & 1974.

The CD version comes with a pull out poster by street artist Samuel Gutierrez.

Peru Maravilloso

Peru Maravilloso: Vintage Latin, Tropical & Cumbia

…is the result of many years obsessively collecting Peruvian music – it’s in our blood. With a focus on ‘60s and ‘70s Latin and Tropical music, we have gone through our cherished vinyl collection and created a hand-picked selection full of unknown treasures from one of Peru’s most exciting musical eras.

The painstaking process of putting together Peru Maravilloso was undertaken with the premise of rooting and unearthing tracks that take the listener by surprise. Whilst recognising the music of cumbia, guaracha and the electric sound of chicha, Peru Maravilloso owes as much to soul-jazz, Latin-jazz, rock and psychedelic as it does to the traditional styles of Andean, Peruvian criollo and Latin.

The CD version comes with a pull out poster detailing the history of the artists on the compilation.

CEVICHE. That’s us and that’s our dish. Everything you need to know about Peruvian food is in it. We’ve travelled the length of Peru to find the best recipes and all over Britain to find the freshest fish – name a beach or a port and we’ve been there. We’re obsessive about how long we marinate it for, the kind of lime we use, the kick from the chilli, when we add the salt and how it’s ground… It all matters to us. A lot.

Making ceviche is a serious business in Peru and we’ve brought it to Soho. Ceviche made in front of you at our Ceviche Bar, fresh as you can get. Super salads with quinoa, barbecued anticuchos a-sizzling and a pisco sour or three at our Pisco Bar, all served with a large slice of chicha. Chicha? It’s a Lima thing. It means playful or cheeky, and it shimmies its way through everything we do.
So while we’re serious about our food, our restaurant is anything but. You’ll see a little chicha in everything here. Laid-back, fuss-free, and a little bit cheeky. Splashes of Lima’s colour and Soho’s spark. Waiters with a sassy smile, rhythm in their hips and the way they talk. Hard-to-find 60’s Peruvian tracks and the latest songs and sounds fresh from the peñas. This is CEVICHE. You might not get better ceviche in Lima. Seriously.

Andina is a casual dining Peruvian restaurant serving food and drinks from breakfast through to dinner on weekdays, and brunch through to dinner at the weekend. We have a juice bar serving freshly made smoothies, coffee and hot drinks which are all available for takeout. We’ve also created a ‘Music Room’ that is available for private dining. Our Peruvian soul food menu is hearty but healthy and uses many superfoods such as such quinoa, maca and lucuma to name a few.

Andina’s decor and menu are inspired by family-run ‘picanterias’ found in the Peruvian Andes. These are popular community restaurants run by Andean women who are lovingly referred to as ‘Andinas’.
