Main Description
Visitors to Lima today may wonder what has happened to the native music of Peru. While the music of Brazil and Chile have spread across to other countries, Peru has been left behind. A notable exception to this statement is the immense popularity of the lambada . Today, Peru's record industry and radio are concerned almost exclusively with salsa and rock both of which have acquired uniquely Peruvian forms.
