AllMusic Review by

A reissue of classic Hugo Zemp recordings from 1970, this CD consists of an old Ocora LP with 17 minutes more music added. About a third of it is devoted to pan-pipe ensembles, which are magnificent; much of the rest is vocal music with rattles, notably several charming women's dances and an example of the eerie Aeolian organ, which is played not by a person but by the wind.
