"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

"The Pipils are descendants of the Aztecs of Mexico and today are the last pure-blooded Indians living in the country of El Salvador. Aside from the Pipils there are few remnant groups of the Lenca, Pokoman, Chorti and Ulva who live throughout the country....In this album some representation of the Pipil culture as well as the latinized traditional, Salvadorean folk melodies, that have their roots in the Indian and Spanish religious ceremonies will be presented..."
