Check out my earlier post on Chicha music, you can actually hear the Juaneco y Su Combo song (my 45 ended up being the master for this project). Nevertheless, these guys from England purchased the rights and reissued the song on a new 7 inch.
The interesting part was that the Peruvian record label INFOPESA or DIMSA (I forget which one) didn’t even have the masters anymore. It just illustrates how important the reissue business can be, it’s like they’re doing the world a favor. Also, I had a record label once, and believe me you, there is no money in it. This is a labor of love if you think so or not.
But the great thing about all this is the Paco Zambrano boogaloo track. Great track and I never heard it before – I just hope I get my FREE!!! copy. Anyway, check out their site, purchase the 45. Highly recommended!

Well, this is just a one off email to introduce you to a new record label set up by myself and Martin Morales, a sister project of Martin’s Ceviche restaurant based in Soho, London.
The label will be covering the spectrum of PERUVIAN music from vintage psych rock to electronica – the common thread will be it’s heritage. Artist albums, comps, the lot and for a quick listen to our first single, click on the bandcamp link.
Check us out if you have a moment,
