Music of the Andes

[ Putumayo World Music / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 10 November 2014

In celebration of Putumayo World Music's 20th anniversary, we return to our South American roots with a collection exploring the enchanting music of the Andes.

Traditional Andean music offers modern listeners an aural connection to the pre-Columbian era when this vast mountainous region was populated exclusively by indigenous cultures. In the 1960s, the sounds of the Andes were embraced by Latin American intellectuals involved in social and political movements. After the global success of Simon & Garfunkel's hit "El Condor Pasa" in 1970, large numbers of Andean musicians facing political and economic challenges emigrated and found appreciative audiences performing on North American and European city streets. Contemporary Andean music today owes its complexity and richness to the vast array of instruments, rhythms and genres that have evolved there over the centuries. 1% of Putumayo's sales will be contributed to Whole Planet Foundation in support of their microcredit initiatives in Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and around the world.
