Photos: Inside A 1970s Peruvian Vinyl Factory

Legendary Peruvian label Infopesa reveal the treasures of their photo archive. 

Infopesa is a record label, recording studio, mastering house and vinyl pressing plant founded by Alberto Maraví in 1971. Widely regarded as the most influential label for Peruvian music throughout the 70s and 80s, Infopesa was the first label in the country to reach the Billboard Latin Charts, with a primary focus on discovering local talent and exposing them to a regional and international audience.

Still very much active today, Infopesa is fast approaching its 40th year in operation. Though the company was founded by Alberto Maraví­, it’s now headed up by his son Juan Ricardo, who has started to reissue many of the Psych, Funk, Boleros and Cumbia gems from their extensive back catalogue. The photos from their archives below provide a snapshot look at the golden age of the Peruvian music industry.
