Tiger's Milk Records releases music from emerging artists and hard to find tracks from Peru.
We have just released PERU MARAVILLOSO, this is the result of many years obsessively collecting Peruvian music: it’s in our blood.
With a focus on ‘60s and ‘70s Latin and tropical music, this debut compilation features a selection of vintage cuts and unknown treasures from one of Peru’s most exciting musical periods.It’s available on beautiful double gatefold vinyl, CD and digital.
Tiger’s Milk is the popular name for the marinade used in ceviches and the music released offers hard to find collectable re-issues as well as music which pays tribute to Peruvian food. Many of the music we play at Ceviche has only ever been released on vinyl, is from the 60s and 70s and you can only get them on vinyl 7-inches that cost around £100 each. From urban latin funk from Lima, to Amazonian psychedelic chicha, many of these songs have laid undiscovered for over 30 years and customers have been asking us how they can get hold of these. We are passionate about bringing Peruvian food and culture to the UK so we hope you love our music.
Amantani helps some of the poorest children in Peru by providing boarding houses where they can have somewhere to sleep, eat and have the chance of an education. Ceviche’s aim is to connect our team in London, our customers and fans with Amantani’s through a series of initiatives and events, both in conjunction with Ceviche and outside. This enables us to raise money for Amantani and create awareness for the fantastic work they are doing in Peru.
In 2010, before I started Ceviche, I met Amantani’s Founder, Fred Branson, and I was blown away by his extraordinary commitment to helping the children of rural Peru. He was neither born there nor has any family ties like I do to the Andes of Peru district of Ccorca, near Cuzco.
Life in that area is tough. Alcoholism among men is rife and fathers are often absent. Anaemia is very common in children due to malnutrition and young girls are often brutally treated as a result of poverty and alcohol related problems. Before the impact of Amantani, any remote chance of getting an education was hindered by a 4-hour walk each day to school and back, which left the children exhausted and unable to learn.
By starting Amantani, Fred embarked on a social entrepreneur mission setting up boarding houses so girls as young as 8 years old could have a place to sleep, receive an education, be fed and treated with love and kindness. I was excited and impressed by what Fred and his colleagues were doing and the ways they achieved results so I told Fred that I would help him fundraise and would support him in anything he needed. A year later he and his amazing co-Director Chris, made me a Trustee of Amantani. We have three houses at present, and have also embarked upon a schools partnership project helping these improve in these rural communities.
We are a small but beautifully formed charity with great leadership that is humble and accountable. We do everything we can to manage, run and care for children by using fundraising moneys transparently and as effectively as possible. We organise a series of entertaining and fun events like photo exhibitions, fun runs, and mountain walk challenges throughout the year that bring people together.

MASTERCLASSES AT CEVICHE
At Ceviche we run Masterclasses on the last Sunday of every month around our Ceviche Bar. We teach quests how to make a fresh-fish Ceviche and all the skills and tricks of the trade that go alongside this. The classes run for 12 guests but fill up quickly so it's best to ask in advance!
