Traffic Sound - Virgin (1970 peru, amazing rough psych rock)

In January 1970, Traffic Sound’s second album, "Virgin" appeared on the market. It was the first Peruvian rock album with 100% original tunes. The album contains the hit single 'Meshkalina', a fusion of Latin rhythms, power rock and hippie lyrics; it also includes beautiful acoustic tracks: 'Virgin', 'Simple' and 'Last song,' and progressive rock tracks like 'Yellow sea days' and 'Jews caboose.'

The uniqueness of Traffic Sound made them very special – although influenced by bands like the Animals, Iron Butterfly, Jimi Hendrix Experience and Pink Floyd, they added their own original touches and created something new.

2. Tell The World I'm Alive - 4:11
3. Yellow Sea Days: March 7th, March 8th, March 9th - 9:00
