If Peru is recognized for its great natural and cultural diversity, it is also worth mentioning that cultural exchanges with other countries have given birth to musical proposals that fuse modern and traditional styles. Remezcla/Pe is a project of Peruvian artists that showcases its cultural diversity.
Within the framework of the European Cultural Project for the 200th anniversary of Peru, the European Union in Peru, together with the network of European cultural centers in Peru-EUNIC and the Alliance Française de Lima, the project was born with different visions and musical styles. Under the production of the Selvamonos Productions agency, some of the best musical exponents were summoned to reinterpret and reinvent the diverse sounds of Peru.
