Description
From two distinct regions of the Peruvian Andes, these 47 tracks reveal the impressive diversity and beauty of regional Andean musical styles. Accompanied by strings, brass, flute, and drums, these festival dances, agricultural ceremonies, marriage songs, and Carnival celebrations were recorded in the 1980s and appear with detailed notes by researchers of the Archives of Traditional Andean Music in Lima.

"A diverse and interesting glimpse into the soul of an old culture."—Massachusetts Daily Collegian

This eight-volume series will be a revelation for those who want to explore styles of Peruvian music that are rarely captured live and in the field. Whether sacred, celebratory, or as a cornerstone of everyday life, this is music that is easy to love.

"The panpipes have become evocative symbols of Andean music and are the region's most distinctive indigenous instruments, played by groups of musicians sharing out the notes of the tune among themselves. The breathy, airborne sound somehow seems at one with the landscape…. Although string instruments arrived with the conquistadores, the armadillo-shell charango has also become a distinctive Andean sound…. The real stuff, atmospherically recorded on location with local musicians."—Sunday Telegraph, UK

The folk music archives that form the wellspring of these Smithsonian recordings are truly incomparable. Encompassing a wide variety of styles, they reflect the heart, soul, and backbone of the American experience as well as indigenous music from around the world. Folkways' impeccable sound and documentation does these artists proud, setting their work off as the treasure it is.
