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.
