This dramatic appreciation, full of alternating joy, sadness, exaltation and melancholy, is properly conveyed by the colourful compositions: The entry of Gabriel Parra's superbly inventive drums, the fuzzy synthesizer work, a swirl of sci-fi inspired Moogs, the energetic emergence of the electric guitar, traditional chants with clever piano backing that eventually leads into another beautiful vocal segment from Alquinta, a brief brass symphony If you are using a VPN, and other users of the same VPN are abusing the service, then you'll be automatically banned as well.

Amor Americano is playful and relies more on vocals although the strident guitar double-tracked with synths is also important, particularly during the gorgeous solo passages.

There are enough reviews on this album, so I guess no one will read mine: Alquinta's whispering vocal and the flowing piano arpeggios remind us of the fact that the river of one man's life is destined to end up in the immense sea of death.

LOS JAIVAS Alturas De Machu Picchu reviews
However the waryness I had was confirmed on the third and fifth or sixth number as the Latino rythm and music take over in what I will classify under Mariachi music for lack of better knowledge I know Mexico is far away from Macchu Picchubut as I said above, I fully admit to not knowing the intrinsicaties of those styles.
This work is a classic South American progressive music, rhythms and sounds imbued native. Simple and nice Andean melody with prog keys from early s. It was a complete new slife for "Los Jaivas". Based on selected texts of the poet Pablo Neruda, this brilliant work was crafted when the band was in exile in France.
