New Sounds of Peru – Best of 2021

By | 21 December, 2021

With the year coming to an end – yes, again, another year has passed living in a pandemic – we can attest to the quality of the music made in our country. Peruvian promoters restarted the wheel by making shows and musicians had the opportunity for the first time in almost two years to play, in public, the songs they’ve put out since COVID hit the globe.

We’ve seen many new artists coming out with their first productions, like ex-Baby Steps Diana Flores who put out three records premiering her new clubby sound; or Pleito and Reies, who not only released their first singles but also already put out their first album El Rap Es Un Regalo. We also got the third album from the firmly-established La Lá. “Mito”, and probably one of the most exciting partnerships that happened in our music yet with José Quiroga from Agua Marina collaborating on Mauricio Mesone’s hit single “Cuando Callas”. It’s been a weirdly long, difficult and fractious year nonetheless. Let’s enjoy it ending.

Here we have a collection of songs with the best we’ve heard coming out from Peruvian artists this 2021, in no particular order…
