Hello to every fans of Eric Satie!!

I'm a peruvian fan of Eric Satie. I was playing Sonatine bourocratique at tyhe piano and suddenly I realized a part of the lyrics. It states about "an old peruvian melody" that burocratic man he represents stuck in his mind. Could anyone in this group give me a clue about why Satie mention "a peruvian melody". Did he maybe met a peruvian, or maybe he knew some peruvian melodies ? Or maybe Eric Satie consider Peru an "exotic" place. All clues are welcome.
Thanks in advance!!
