Afro Peruvian Classics – The Soul Of Black Peru

CD

✈

A great collection of tracks – and one of the first chance for most of us to hear the funkier side of sounds from Peru! The work isn't as full-on funky as Brazilian grooves from the time, but does share a very strong influence from American styles – and really goes way past any cliches of pan pipes you might have for Peruvian music – to a more complicated world of criss-crossing styles that echoes more creative moments from Columbia as well. Titles include "Lando" by Chabuca Granda, "Maria Lando" by Susana Baca, "Samba Malato" by Lucila Campos, "Prendeme La Vela" by Abelardo Vasquez, "Enciendete Candela" by Roberto Rivas, "No Me Cumben" by Nicomedes Santa Cruz, and more. Nice enough that you could almost forgive David Byrne for including one of his own tracks!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
