Mountain Music of Peru, Vol. 1 gives a varied view of urban and rural Andean music from the 1960s. Musicians use Andean and European instruments, including the guitar-like charango, siku (panpipes), harp, conch shells, and drums. Songs like the marching-band-style “Bella Andajina” and processional “Catholic Mass Sung in Quechua” show Spain’s influence, while the instrumental “Huayno from Ayacucho” and solo female voice in “Song of Marriage” exemplify indigenous sounds. Liner notes include information on Peru’s ethnic groups, features of Andean music, lyrics, and track notes.
