Peruvian rock music on the radio

Peruvian rock is a music genre that emerged in the late 60s and early 70s in Peru, blending elements of rock, folk, and Andean music. The genre is characterized by the use of native Peruvian instruments such as the charango and quena, as well as Spanish guitar and drums. The lyrics often touch on themes related to the social and political struggles of the time.

One of the most popular bands of the genre is Los Saicos, considered by some as one of the pioneers of punk rock, with their fast-paced and aggressive sound. Other notable artists include Traffic Sound, Tarkus, and Pax, whose music blended rock and Andean influences.

In the 80s, the genre experienced a revival with bands such as Leuzemia and Narcosis, who combined punk rock with social commentary. The 90s saw the emergence of bands such as La Liga del Sueño and Libido, who incorporated elements of grunge and alternative rock into their sound.

There are several radio stations in Peru that feature Peruvian rock, including Radio Nacional del Perú, Radio Filarmonía, and Radio Oasis. These stations not only play classic and contemporary Peruvian rock, but also feature interviews with artists and news related to the genre.
