The founders of Ceviche, a renowned Peruvian restaurant in London’s Soho section, are naturally connoisseurs of Peruvian culture and they created Tiger’s Milk Records to share Peru’s rich (and rarely shared) music both past and present. Tiger Milk’s debut release is a painfully researched compilation compiled by Ceviche’s Martin Morales, Duncan Ballantyne of Soundway Records, Far Out Recordings and Naive Records, and Andres Tapia of Peru’s Rescyhled Records, which unearths rare chica, salsa, rock, and fusion one-offs, titled Peru Maraviloso

Lucho Neves’ “Mambo De Machaguay” is the first single from the compilation which will see a November 12th release, and it’s an incredible bit of salsa that owes quite a debt to jazz – as a composition it reminds me of the breezy and witty compositions of the great Horace Silver. With the cool fall weather, it’s a nice reminder of summer, as well.
