60年代末70年代初来自秘鲁的迷幻乐队,有着来自同期英伦气息影响的早期progressive rock,很像Traffic和Jethro Tull的风格,Jean Pierre Magnet完成了所有长笛和萨克斯的部分,是当时南美的迷幻音乐中较为有影响的乐队,发行了4张专辑后1972年解散
A popular Peruvian rock group in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Traffic Sound had a very British-influenced early progressive rock sound along the lines of Traffic and (more distantly) Jethro Tull. These similarities were evident in the band's use of flute and saxes, all played by Jean Pierre Magnet, who could also play vibes and percussion. What is surprising is that Traffic Sound, unlike other South American groups of the period that only came to light in the Northern Hemisphere in the 1990s, do not sound exotic or primitive. They simply sound like an accomplished minor-league 1970 rock band with considerable progressive, psychedelic, and soul influences informing their original material. There's a Latin feel to some of the rhythmic percussive grooves, sure, but no more, really, than you would find in a cut like Traffic's "Feelin' Alright." They disbanded in 1972 after four albums; some of their material found US release in 1997.
