The Andean Hour (La Hora Andina) features the musical traditions of the Andean countries - Bolivia, Peru - Ecuador, and parts of Chile and Argentina. It focuses on past and contemporary artists, as well as on the regional and local genres of both rural and city traditions. It explores the musical heritage of the indigenous Aymara and Quechua, the music of traditional festivals, and the immense diversity of song and dance forms, instruments, and voices from the Andes. In any Andean Hour, the listener may hear fragments from a Colonial period Mass sung in Quechua, the virtuoso charango player Ernesto Cavour, and panpipe ensembles from the Andean Highlands, as well as prestigious groups such as Kjarkas, Savia Andina, and much, much more. In this program, new and old are blended in an exciting musical adventure!
