I feel pretty late to the game on Peru’s Buh Records, but regardless of how long it took me to learn about this incredible label, there is so much good stuff to dig through. Started in 2004 by Luis Alvarado, Buh has released a diverse cache of music from artists all over the world. The label’s recent compilation of experimental music from Peru is an excellent place to start, but the forthcoming album of Oksana Linde‘s archival works is essential and the recent album from the Czech Republic’s Gurun Gurun has been on regular rotation here. Quietly, Buh has built one of the most impressive discographies on the planet.
Dig into this mix of music from the label and head to their Bandcamp page to get in on the action.
