Hit International (Los Palteados & La Sonora Roza)
by Names You Can Trust
Title: Hit International
Format: 7" Split Single
Speed: 45 RPM
From a fascinating yet relatively undiscovered era of experimental music in Peru’s capital city Lima, this never before released split single features two of the foremost musical minds of modern day tropical, electronic and ambient roots music. One song each was plucked from the archives of mutual friends Los Palteados (Tomas Tello) & La Sonora Roza (Efraín Rozas / La Mecánica Popular), offering a rare glimpse into the musicians’ respective productions and group projects at the onset of the 21st century. The pair of selected recordings each have their own hypnotic sensibility, yet both remain blissfully approachable experimentations in the beloved styles of cumbia & descarga.
