Susana Baca is usually the first Peruvian singer that comes to mind for many North Americans, but Baca's popularity in her homeland is actually surpassed by singer Eva Ayllon. Performing since the late 1970s, Ayllon fills 30,000 seat arenas and records platinum-selling records at home. The singer has toured the U.S., but never with the calling card of a domestic album. Now Ayllon has Eva! Leyenda Peruana to rectify the matter. Whereas Baca's voice is delicate and lilting with wisps of jazz, Ayllon is fiery and earthy as she sings in Spanish. Her music is mostly made up of traditional lando, festejo, and vals that come out of the Afro-Peruvian tradition, punctuated by the music's signatory box-shaped cajon drum as well as congas, acoustic guitar and piano. Highlights include the easy swinging vals "Para Que," the playful festejo "Jolgrio de Eva" and the Spanish-flavored tondero "La Herida Oscura." This is a true find amidst the South American music diaspora. -- Tad Hendrickson

I am a Peruvian who lives in Lima so I can say Eva Ayllon is the real idol of Peruvian music. Her voice is similar to that of the Brazilian singer Alcione, very strong and clear and very beautiful. The songs included in this album are just a few of the great number of hits she has had in Peru. She has a lot of CDs here and several DVDs. Try this one and I am sure Amazon will start receiving pressure to market more products of this great Peruvian singer.

Eva Ayllon's vocals are nothing short of amazing: her songs focus on the coastal plains of Lima, she can sing the lando, festejo, and val styles with equal fervor, and the range of influences varies from Andean to African - with everything in between.

 Ayllon specializes in complex syncopated beats and interactions between voice and instrumentals - an almost jazzy background offers uniquely Peruvian embellishments and a recording replete with dance beats from Caribbean influences.

Eva Ayllon is known as the "golden voice of Peru" for a reason! She is a powerful, passionate singer, with a beautiful voice, singing spectacular music. The songs on this CD range from joyful traditional afro-peruvian songs (including the popular "Le Dije a Papa" and "Inga"), to heartbreaking "valses", including some songs by the unforgettable Chabuca Granda.

It's an obvious choice for Peruvians, and I'm thrilled she's finally being introduced to World Music fans elsewhere!
