CD Reviews

Inca Quena, by Inti Raymi
J. A. Canfield | Mason, NH United States | 09/22/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Edgar Villarroel and Maria Victoria Cespedes are afficionados and virtuosos of the music and instruments of the historical native people of the Andean altiplano. These artists are devoted to preserving and performing traditional music as well as composing music emulating it, playing only pre-hispanic instruments. Of the 10 tracks, Kusga Quilla (Half Moon) and Llaqui Phuyo(Sad Clouds) are particularly evocative, as Mr. Villarroel reveals the expressive intonation and subtle vocality of the end-blown Andean wooden flute, or quena. The number of instruments skillfully played by these two, combined with the balance, timing and spontaneity of their vocal expressions in performance is a joy to experience."
