Its a crime that i've never posted anything from Peru. I've only been there for a short time and didn't get much a handle on what seems like an amazing country, so this is a random Peruvian stuff post.
I'm Blown away by Tunchi's street photography of Lima. From emo kids to fluro cumbia posters, colours bounce out of the grey cityscapes. Here is a few from his incredible flickr and Blog sets.
Musicwise, all I've ever known is the funky assed psychedelic Amazonica cumbias from bands like Los Mirlos. Tropical Chicha cumbia, Real Jungle music.
and the amazing firebrand hip hop of expat, Immortal Technique. But now its party time. Cheers to Amdi in Lima for this who sends me GBQ Heat from Peru.
A crazy audiotune trance cumbia mashup reggaeton bubbler by DJ Miguelon. Apparently this shit is so fresh that it hasn't even hit the pirate mercados in Lima yet.

Chicha tu Madre is a funny, low budget movie from a couple of years ago, following a wayward taxi driver messing with Tarot, hookers and a football team. The photography around Lima's dusty calles is awesome. Don't know if it's on DVD but check out the Trailer.
