Peru Maravilloso: Vintage Latin, Tropical & Cumbia

Tiger’s Milk Records label is dedicated to releasing quality music made in Peru: from punk to funk, chicha to cumbia and folk to electronica, past and present.
With a focus on ‘60s and ‘70s Latin and tropical music, the compilation Peru Maravilloso features a selection of vintage cuts and unknown treasures from one of Peru’s most exciting musical eras. The vast majority of these songs were only ever pressed once on vinyl and have remained unreleased since.
Songs here stem from different places – influences of soul-jazz, psychedelia and traditional Andean music can all be heard in the soundscape of this “maravilloso” 15-song-selection.

My favourite track is La Cumbia Del Pacurro by Juaneco Y Su Combo which you can clearly hear influenced Meridian Brothers.
