We are a group of peruvian record collectors and sellers.
Each one of us is dedicated to collect, buy and sell all kinds of music, some specialized in rock, some others in latin, new wave, soundtracks and so on.
Our history begins over 40 years ago in "La Colmena" Av. (Lima, Perú), as a bunch of bohemian guys, enjoying and selling good music. It was very often having people from abroad coming to buy our records because they knew that here it was one of the few places in the world where they could get very good music. The comments about the good times they had at "La Colmena" Avenue here in Lima, and all the good memories they took with the records they bought here are one of our greatest satisfactions.
For many years we have been offering the best Peruvian and world's music to our customers who were always 100% satisfied with our products.
5 years ago we starting selling our records records begin to were available to the world through many sites like ebay.com, mercadolibre.com, deremate.com and others.
Now, at the request of our hundreds of buyers in the world, we have implemented our own online store: The Colmena | Records Store. to keep offering the best of the Peruvian music and giving you greater opportunities, such as credits or records reservation.
Besides, since this year we are a company: THE COLMENA SAC, with the same people who know their tastes and needs, and we will always seeking the best of world music for you.
