"There's something incredible about the feeling of being transported to a new location through music. On Peru Maravilloso, the debut full length release from Strut-affiliated label Tiger's Milk Records, compilers Martin Morales (founder of renowned London restaurant Ceviche), Duncan Ballantyne (Soundway Records, Far Out, Naive), and Andres Tapia (of Peru's Resychled Records) make for amazing musical tour guides.
Covering a range of original Peruvian music from cumbia and salsa to latin jazz and psychedelia including some unique fusions, the compilation is about as close as you can get to Peru in the '60s and '70s without a plane ticket and a time machine. For a taste of the music, you can stream Los Ecos' cover of the Beatles' "I Feel Fine" below.
The first 50 orders of Peru Maravilloso on CD or LP from the Strut store will include a limited edition 7" featuring two tracks from the album." Digital out now, CD/LP out November 18, 2013.
