I spent a month in Lima, Peru in 2011, just before returning to the US after almost a year living abroad. I was able to spend a lot of time with some of the punks in Lima including El Terrible Y Los Mongoloids, Voz Propia, and the legendary Pancho Guevara from the band “Los Saicos” who some credit with being the actual, very first punk band in the world. I wrote an article about it for “Remezcla” magazine which you can access here.
Pancho has since died, but his legacy lives on of course. I’m returning to Lima next week and thought I’d link to some of those articles for those who missed it.
