Peru Bravo: Funk, Soul & Psych from Peru's Radical Decade

Peru Bravo…tells the whirlwind story of a culture in flux. 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.

Like its predecessor, ‘Peru Maravilloso’, Peru Bravo digs deep. It unearths the full spectrum of incendiary underground funk, soul and psych sounds that emerged following the first TV performance by the Peruvian Grand Daddies of garage punk, Los Saicos in 1965.

“The Latin rock of locals such as Laghonia and Traffic Sound suggests a Peruvian Santana could have emerged and conquered” Guardian

“Santana influenced so many, this ia a great, great compilation” NPR

“A brilliant collection of tracks, so, so good” Lauren Laverne BBC

Available on Double Vinyl (with bonus track), CD (with pullout poster) & Digital via Bandcamp, Amazon, Spotify and good record shops.
