The crazy pace of life in Lima transformed into high energy Peruvian psychedelic rock

Peruvian band Hit La Rosa perform their song Las Ratas - the rats - inspired by the speed but also the squalor and compromise of city life. Hit La Rosa are one of a number of young Peruvian bands re-invigorating the country's music scene, and drawing on the riches of Peru's music past.
