CD Reviews

BARBARA E. RUMORE | Vieques, Puerto Rico | 09/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Prepare to be transported to the Andes when you listen to this CD. The blend of styles, instruments (traditional & modern) & muscians culminate in a journey for your mind to the Andes. I could feel the crisp thin air as I traveled through Ecuador, Peru, Chile & Bolivia on the wings of each song.If you want to be transported too. Get this CD"
Polished, organized variances of contemporary Andean Music
James D. Smith | 08/03/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Personally I do not enjoy what seems to be "old, traditional" Andean Music for long periods of time. I find I like a more contemporary, upbeat, arrangement of the use of flutes, churangos, etc. Overall I have enjoyed ANDEAN LEGACY but I do not feel its a pure Andean Music CD. This CD presents Andean music and musical instruments in a contemporary presentation. The CD even has a bit of country music flavor on several songs for those who like that venue. For a person who wants to experience Andean Music this CD provides nice variety and insight what contemporary Andean Music is like. For the person who has CD's on Andean Music, I feel, ANDEAN LEGACY would be a nice enhancement."
Another, haunting kind of "mountain music"
James D. Smith | Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA | 11/22/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being born and raised in Applachia, I was struck by the strong, unexpected parallels between the songs included on this CD and the traditional Bluegrass and Celtic musical traditions I grew up with. Substitute fiddle or hammered dulcimer for flute, and the music of the Andean mountains seems suddenly familiar, as though mountain cultures separated by miles have found a common musical space to inhabit. I have found this CD excellent for meditation and as a background for yoga."
