      Description hide

      The communities of the Lima Highlands narrate history, protect social and cultural stability, and observe tradition through ceremonial music, theater, and dance. The musicians of the region employ a unique combination of traditional Peruvian instruments that includes cane flutes, harps, and tinya drums alongside guitars, violins, brass instruments, and more. The twenty-five field recordings featured here offer an intensely honest glimpse into the most meaningful aspects of the lives of the people of the Lima Highlands. Liner notes in English and Spanish. 24-page booklet with photos. 49 minutes.
