San Ignacio: L'Opera Perdu De L'Amazonie
Genres: Alternative Rock, Pop, Classical
One of the most incredible musical journeys in history!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The lost opera of the Amazon was found some years ago in the Bolivian Jesuit Missions of Chiquitos. Like in the film Mission, the history of the opera depicts the incredible history of the work done by the missionaires and the people of the Amazon. The opera shows the classic combat between good and evil among angels, demons and the jesuits. The most incredible part of all this is that it is likely that most of the opera and some extra songs recorded in this cd had been composed and executed by the Chiquitanos and Moxos Indians after the Jesuit Expulsion from the Americas in 1767. Most incredibly, the paperwork which contained thousands of musical works, were copied during 200 hundred years by the Bolivians, to whom belong now this treasure."
