5.0 out of 5 stars Chilean folk music from the distant future November 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Released in 1975 this is another fan favorite and along with Alturas de Macchu Picchu (1981) presents a nice introduction to the unique sound of Los Jaivas. If I have my history correctly, the band had left Chile and was residing in Argentina at this point. The band however, did not lose the Chilean folk influence which is very much a part of their overall sound - a colorful and vibrant mixture of Chilean folk music and English progressive rock.

The lineup at this point included Eduardo Parra (organ, piano, tumbadoras - congas, bongos, cascabeles - hand held percussion instrument with bells, tarka flute, and zampona - Andean panpipe); Claudio Parra (steinway piano, electric piano, guiro, maracas, zamponas, trutrucas); Gabriel Parra (drums and percussion); Eduardo Alquinta (lead vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, flute, piccolo, and percussion); and Julio Anderson (bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and percussion). These guys are very good players and their mastery of the traditional Chilean instruments is impressive. Although rock instruments are used a lot, I really enjoy the tone colors that instruments like the tarka and zampona lend the music in addition to the textures of the percussion instruments - the use of traditional folk instruments is such a welcome departure from straight rock instrumentation. Claudio is a true virtuoso and his technique on the acoustic piano is simply dazzling - especially on Tarka y Ocarina. The vocals (in Spanish) are superb.

The six tracks on the album range in length from 4:06 to the lengthy closing track Tarka y Ocarina, which clocks in at a little over 13 minutes. The music is a nice blend of alternately cheery and moody Chilean folk music and progressive rock (prog rock in the PFM sense of the word).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Killer album from a Killer Band! July 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Very creative band, highly recommended for progressive fans."Los Jaivas" is a very unique band, they mixed prog rock with SouthAmerican andean music. Their sound is very particular and hard to compare to someone else, yet pretty progressive.

This particular album is one their best works. Highly recommended for prog-fans, worthy for you collection, check them out! One of the best Latin progressive albums from all times!!!
