Peru: Andean Music of Life, Work, and Celebration CD

  • $1529


UNESCO’s previously unreleased album Peru: Andean Music of Life, Work, and Celebration presents a wide array of rural indigenous musical traditions, culled from the most outstanding historical field recordings found in the archives of the Institute of Ethnomusicology of the Catholic University of Peru. The vast collection includes previously undocumented pre-Hispanic genres, such as the Harawi and Wanka ritual styles. Music of courtship, marriage, work, ritual, celebration, and Christmas devotion takes us into the heart of indigenous life in many regions of Andean Peru. To better guide the listener, the recording is divided into five sections: Music and Lifecycle, Music and Work, Music and Dances, Carnival Music, and Religious Songs and Christmas Songs. Compiler and annotator Raul R. Romero provides meticulous liner notes, which give the listener a thorough overview of the recordings on this new release.
