AllMusic Review by

This is music for harp, two violins, quena flutes, mandolin, and percussion, recorded in Ayacucho, in the Quechua heartland. This family group combines village ruggedness with a certain musical "sophistication," to unusual and mostly very striking effect. Certainly it's a lot more interesting than the rather over-polite groups that get most of the running when it comes to Andean music -- often on political correctness rather than real musical distinction.
