Peru Bravo: 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 by dozens of young bands full of ideas, spontaneous and unfazedthe 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. Peru Bravo was compiled by top chef, author and restaurateur Martin Morales (Ceviche), Duncan Ballantyne (Ex-Soundway) & Andrés Tapia del Rio (Repsychled Records). It features 15 tracks and unearths the full spectrum of incendiary underground funk, soul and psych sounds between 1968 & 1974 (the reign of Velasco).
