Tiger’s Milk Records first took shape in 2012 after Peruvian cook and restaurateur Martin Morales, also a record collector, DJ and former Head of iTunes Pan EU, opened his Peruvian restaurant in London, Ceviche. His passion and enthusiasm for Peruvian music and cooking led to a meeting with Duncan Ballantyne (Soundway / Naive / Far Out). The label was formed and a debut 7” of archive Peruvian cuts was released to widespread praise in 2012. Now moving to their first full length compilation, Tiger’s Milk Records presents PERU MARAVILLOSO, the result of many year obsessively collecting Peruvian music: it’s in their blood. With a focus on ‘60s and ‘70s Latin and tropical music, this debut album features a selection of vintage cuts and unknown treasures from one of Peru’s most exciting musical periods. The vast majority of these songs were only ever pressed once on vinyl and have remained unreleased since.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 psychedelia as it does to the traditional styles of Andean,Peruvian criollo and Latin music that dominated the cultural backdrop of Peru during this era. It was the dogged work of labels like Iempsa, Sono Radio, FTA and Infopesa who tirelessly promoted and produced the bands and tracks featured on this compilation. Much of these labels’ output had some degree of Western influence as they recognised the tastes of Peruvians who were in tune with Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles, artists who wrote songs in which the electric guitar was fundamental to their sound. Many of the bandleaders of Peruvian groups were guitarists so their Latin compositions often took on a psychedelic twist, often with simple, hypnotic rhythms and repetitive basslines but always stamped with a unique mix of Peruvian, Andean, Spanish and African influence.
