CD Reviews

As much feeling, but better done
brett | australia | 03/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"there are no obvious tunes (like El Condor Pasa) ,yet whilst hearing them it feels like i'm listening to a classic traditional. the mood is yurning despite some having a touch of fun. they are very well-played (+ recorded).alot of Peruvian/Bolivian cd's give over-prominence to the pan-flutes.this cd doesn't make the mistake of thinking that the guitar-like instrument having good volume will take away from the pan-flutes' ability to hook u. infact, this cd has a perfect balance from bass thru middle-pitch to treble. (some tracks have underlying voices, which is pleasantly spooky) well-structured collection of beautiful yurning tunes."
Best compilation of contemporary andean music yet!

"I've been playing andean music professionally for many years and have a vast collection of Andean music cds. I have to say that this compilation is the best I own and the best I've ever heard. I do admit that the title of this album is misleading. The pieces recorded in this CD are not really traditional folk songs, but a collection of contemporary songs written and performed by some of the best andean musicians of today.
Andean music is an ancient but evolving artform and it's very refreshing to see that there is collections like this one that exposes people to quality recordings by quality contemporary artists."
