AllMusic Review by

Runa Thushuy is the sort of South American band which can be found on street corners and outdoor festivals in most major U.S. cities, piping away on flutes and strumming on various string instruments in the guitar family; this band is based in Chicago. This is beautiful, lively, celebratory music which combines the rhythms and poetry of the Spanish, the environmental spirit of the Native Americans, and a distinctly South American spice. Most of the tracks are instrumental, a wise choice since the band's musicians are clearly more accomplished instrumentalists than singers.
