Peruvian Funk Various Artists


In April of 2010, Secret Stash Records traveled to Lima, Peru in search of music to bring back to the U.S. and share with the world. While down there, they asked everyone they talked to about Peruvian funk music.
A local man was helping them sort through stacks of records in a run-down garage when he handed Secret Stash a pile of what he called rock records. Most of the stuff was psych and pop from the '60s and '70s. But, as it turned out, a few were straight up funk. Apparently, they had funk in Peru during the '70s, Peruvians just didn’t know that’s what it was called.
Peruvian Funk brings together the funkiest cuts Secret Stash found that day in Lima on one compilation. The mix of Latin jazz, soul, and hard funk found in these recordings makes for one of the most fun records they’ve ever had the pleasure of releasing.
