The most amazing Andean CD ever ...

"Wow! Words can't describe the sheer beauty of this album. I bought it on the strength of hearing 2 songs by Eddy Navia and Sukay on a compilation and was still amazed at what a fantastic album this is. Every song is absolutely incredible and guaranteed to have you soaring into the happiest of moods. I love Andean music and with over 100 Cds in my collection I've lost count of how many versions I have got of El Condor Pasa, but this version is amazing. Eddy Navia has brought out a couple of CDs in his own right and also plays with the band Savia Andina and the one album of theirs that I have - Savia Andina - is excellent too. Between them there are dozes of albums to collect and I intend to get them all! I've several on order with both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk and eagerly await their arrival. This is Andean music at its very best and an absolute must have for any collection. Look out for my review on Eddy Navia's solo album "En Charango". If he plays even half as well as he did on Cumbre I shall be raving about that too! Amazon, please keep trying to get Mozart in Macchu Pichu - music this brilliant should never be allowed to go out of stock!"
High energy, Andean music - traditional instruments

"Without getting into individual cuts from the CD, this album magically combines several Andean pan flutes and a traditional Bolivian stringed instrument with interesting vocals. Although the album is more sophisticated than the music played by Bolivian and Peruvian street musicians, the haunting pan flute runs and well harmonized vocals are very reminisant of the traditional music."

"It's always scary to make the first purchase of music in a genre with which you're not familiar. However, I trusted the previous listener review and found it to be completely on-target. The disc is great from start to finish and has good variety--various native flutes mixed with various native stringed instruments, plus an interesting vocal or two. The music sounds authentic to a non-expert like me but has enough polish to avoid the out-of-tune "street musician" amateurism of so many international discs that I have bought and either returned or sold for a couple of bucks. This one's a keeper."
