Miguel Locatelli, music aficionado and owner of Vinyl Sounds Peru, guided us into his vinyl store located in a hip Lima neighborhood. Vinyl Sounds Peru was started in 2013 and was recently named on of the top start-ups at Start Up Academy – a local incubator serving Lima-based Peruvian entrepreneurs.
Miguel started his career as a music teacher at a local University and eventually left to pursue his passion of vinyl. However, Vinyl Sounds Peru is more than just a music shop – it represents one of the largest communities of vinyl listeners in Latin America. According to Miguel (this translated from Spanish), “At Vinyl Sounds Peru, we believe in creating a community of Vinyl… not just selling music. We provide information and host events and get-to-gethers for Peruvians that appreciate Vinyl.”
