Latin Waves at 1pm – roots of Peruvian Prog and Psychedelia

April 26th, 2015 · No Comments

In Latin Waves at 1pm Javier Chandía Javier Chandia explores the beginnings of Peruvian Prog Rock and Psychedelia through two important albums by Traffic Sound. In early 1970s Peru, a thick ideological line designated what was “national” and what was “foreign.” A military junta had recently come to power, bent on remaking the nation in its image. Constitutional protections were suspended. But for the first time, the nation’s long-repressed indigenous groups were given land rights and cultural recognition. Rockers were caught in the crossfire of a fraught ideological battleground. Such were the historical forces that shaped Traffic Sound, arguably Peru’s most important progressive rock band of the era. Founded in 1967, after a year of continued rehearsals and private shows they tried their luck at Peruvian psychedelic emporium The Tiffany with great success. Their second album “Virgin” (1969) contains the hit “Meshkalina”. In 1970 they recorded another LP named “Traffic Sound”, aka. III, aka. “Tibet’s Suzettes”, where they blended the Psychedelic spirit with an Andean folk sound.
