Urubamba - "Urubamba'' {Peru} [1974] @192 (traditional folk)

You've heard this wonderful instrumental South American group if you've heard "El Condor Pasa" by Simon & Garfunkel or "Duncan" by Paul Simon. Known as los Incas when Simon first encountered them in 1965 while appearing on the same bill in Paris, the renamed quartet produced an appealing debut. "Kacharpari" was recorded during Simon's Live Rhymin' tour in 1973. Using traditional Andean instruments that can sound otherworldly to North American ears, Urubamba covers a wide emotional range, following the eerie "Death in Santa Cruz" with the joyous "Good News Pan Pipes." The group is named for the river that winds at the foot of Machu Picchu, the final fortified city of the Incas. (Mark Allan, All Music Guide)

This melodies come from heaven..it was very hard to select a sample song to put here..all of them awesome for me..maybe for you too..it is like a box of chocolate..

Te aconsejaria que metieras alguito de rock argentino. Por ejemplo: Almendra, Les Luthiers, Sui Generis, Espíritu, León Gieco, Virus, etc. Sería fantástico.

claro que algo de rock argentino, pero de esas bandas muy pocas son prog, ademas son faciles de encontrar, creo q mejor es el folk under que se encuentra aqui.
una sugerencia: "Los Blops" y su album "Locomotora"

I've been looking for a copy of this album for over 25 years. Ever since I heard my brothers copy. Thanks.

La verdad, no esperaba semejante genialidad en este tipo de música, que quizas no me atraía tanto como ahora, que conozco las dos caras de la música latinoamericana.

hi nahavanda

do you have possibility to get the second album (or first in chronological order) of Urubamba? If so - could you upload it?

mimo said...

Hi - I downloaded the other title you have here - BIG Thanks for sharing that. Unfortunately, this file is no longer...

Would there be any chance of a re-upload on this one?
