Traditional Music of Peru

In contrast to the melodies of the Mayan region, which field recordist Samuel Marti describes as “martial and solemn,” the music of the Incas is “nostalgic and gay.” Selections on Traditional Music of Peru include the music and dances of the Chunchus and Quollas, a pampa hash ceremonial dance, and music from the island of Taquile. Panpipes and wooden flutes are featured prominently. Liner notes include a brief introduction and track notes written by Samuel Marti along with pictures.
