From the Andes melancholy musical forms. From Africa the dance rhythms. Pantheistic religious are common to both the Andes and Africa. In addition to the guitar, 3 instruments are important to this music: the cajon and the cajita – both musical boxes and the quijada de burro – a jawbone with loosened teeth which vibrate when struck. The instrumental intro of each track gives you a clue as to what to expect. Try 2,3,4,8,9,12, 13 You may want to compare the renditions of the songs of the same name.
