Macchu Picchu - the very name conjures up visions of a lost civilization, and the legendary city that now stands in ruins atop a high ridge in the Andes mountains, a distant reminder of the mighty Incas. In this recording, celebrated world music producer Verna Gillis has gathered a unique and varied collection of traditional Peruvian music which includes festival songs and dances accompanied by a wide array of instruments including charango, cajon, guijada de burro (donkey's jaw), clarinet, harp and saxophone. Four hundred years of blended Incan, Indian and Spanish cultures created this fascinating and diverse music and song. This is a surprising, joyful and rare musical excursion deep into the high Andes - the land of Macchu Picchu.
