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