MUSIC from the ANDES...and nearby regions  Español

I've been collecting music from the Andean Cordillera during college and for years afterward. Please e-mail any corrections or comments. There is a wide - and growing - variety of examples here. I hope you'll be inspired to look further into the music and other sociocultural facets of the Andes region and South America in general. Be sure to check your local listings for live performances of this music. CDs are also available - James Duncan, Santa Cruz, California, USA

If you can help with more information on the artists, titles, and record numbers, be sure to e-mail me.

Plus...MORE SONGS with notes by Paul Farren of the London group,  ACHALAY. This is wonderful hand picked music from Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia, Venezuela, Peru, Uruguay and Colombia.
