Hear a selection of Peruvian music compiled by Buh Records founder Luis Alvarado

July 2017

The Lima based label and research platform shares a long list of tracks from past, new and future releases

Buh Records has been releasing music from Peru since 2004. For the past 13 years the label has supported contemporary musicians from the Peruvian capital Lima and its surroundings. It has also carried out research into native archive recordings and presented the findings as a series of compilations of 'rescued' Peruvian avant garde music.

This playlist, provided by journalist, radio programmer, artist and label head Luis Alvarado, features tracks from new Buh releases by musician and researcher Efraín Rozas, psych band Liquidarlo Celuloide and an unearthed piece from modern composer José Sosaya.

In addition to 13 other tracks from past Buh releases, Alvarado has included two from forthcoming records by Varsovia and Teté Leguía/Sam Weimberg/Weasel Walter.

A Global Ear article about new music in Lima by Russ Slater was published in The Wire 379. Subscribers can access the issue via the online archive.
