One of the goals of Fundación Interchange is to document non-western cultures and present their art to the western public, in this way giving artists an opportunity to share their works with a world-wide audience (and giving that audience the chance to discover those treasures).

To this end Fundación Interchange founded its own record label: Merusa Records.merusa-logo The name Merusa combines "meru" and "musa": meru is an indigenous - Pemon - word meaning waterfall, and musa is Spanish for muse. Merusa can thus be understood as an attempt to encapsulate the river of sounds, originating from the wellsprings of inspiration, the waterfall of the generous muse of music.

So far Merusa Records has released more than 20 CDs with latin, Caribbean and European music styles. Hidden treasures from around the world that wouldn't have been heard otherwise, as well as well-researched compilations and field recordings. Salsa, son, jazz, ska, roots, folk, rock, etnofunk, flamenco, gypsy and wildly experimental world music.
