In Remezcla/PE, fifteen producers from different parts of the world remix Peruvian songs
Peru is defined by its cultural diversity and its multiple exchanges with the rest of the world. This is why the Remezcla/PE project brings together several expert remix producers to reinvent the original musical themes of fifteen artists of various styles and from different regions of the country that are a reflection of contemporary Peru. Whether American or European, all these producers draw from the existing to shape their electronic experimentations.
From the coast, highlands and jungle; from the most traditional to contemporary fusions. Remezcla/PE is a compilation that offers an original reflection of today's Peruvian music scene. In their compositions and lyrics, these artists are the embodiment of the multiplicity of influences and artistic trajectories. With this album, and to celebrate the anniversary of the Bicentenary of the Independence of Peru, the European Union in Peru, EUNIC and the Alliance Française de Lima, with the production of the Selvámonos agency, portray the image of a country united in its diversity, open to the world and above all, in constant movement, and seek to strengthen cultural ties between Peru, Latin America and Europe.
