Secret Stash Records & The Find Magazine - Peruvian Digging
By Laid Back
Minneapolis-based Secret Stash Records - www.secretstashrecords.com - is a vinyl focused label that specializes in reissues. In 2010, Eric Foss, Cory Wong, and Unai Jesus Bolivar Uriarte traveled to Lima with the primary goal of assembling an Afro-Peruvian band for recording an album of classic songs from the genre as well modern compositions. On that trip they also discovered an incredible wealth of old records and dug through the archives of some of the most prominent Peruvian labels. Their search yielded several amazing releases including a series of Peña albums featuring fresh recordings of Afro-Peruvian classics as well as new compositions and remixes, vinyl compilations of old Peruvian funk and Afro-Peruvian songs, and a reissue of Los Destellos, a ground breaking psychedelic cumbia group.
This mix featuring songs from those releases functions as an introduction to the rich musical history of Peru.
