AllMusic Review by

Collecting 21 tracks from various sources, Lo Mejor de Illapu stands as one of the best documents of the Chilean group, and indeed of South American folk music period. Using flute, guitar, and occasional percussion, the trio move from songs sentimental and wistful ("Los Mapuches," "Candombe Para Jose") to playful and energetic ("La Candelaria").
