Sacambaya de Bolivia

en el alma de los andes EUCD 1808

Sacambaya is the Andean name for a variety of potatoes! They are an 8 piece group who feature the instruments you would associate with a South American band - panpipes, treble guitar, flute etc. The music is modem but composed in the traditional idiom.
(Think of Paul Simon's El Condor Pasa).
The CD is meant to be a cultural and musical ambassador for Bolivia.
