AllMusic Review by

Volume one of this series, produced by the Lima, Peru-based Archives of Traditional Andean Music, investigates the music of religious festivals, which remains one of the most crucial kinds of artistic expression in the Andes. These 1989 recordings draw on the festival music of the Cusco region, typified by flute and drum, harp and violin, brass band, accordion and vocal performances.
