Tumi Album Canto a la mujer de mi pueblo
Tata sabaya
K'Jarkas
Ulises Hermosa

Lively Andean instrumental. This song has been very influential amongst other musicians of this tradition, that at times have put lyrics to this melody.

Tumi Album Canto a la mujer de mi pueblo
Phuru runas
K'Jarkas
Ramiro de la Zerda

A very well produced instrumental track where softer pipes give way to a deep, rich bass pan pipe. The baroque picking of the charangos and mandolins give some sort of medieval, epic touch to the song. The percussion made with chajchas (bunch of llamas' nails) can be appreciated.

Tumi Album Canto a la mujer de mi pueblo
Llorando se fue
K'Jarkas
Ulises Hermosa

The original melody of "La Lambada", here at an earlier, slower version, with the full lyrics in Spanish.

The word K'jarkas stands for 'strength' in native Bolivian Aymara language and their strength lies in the sheer variety of their musical repertoire.

Their music is a blend of Andean folk ballads and songs with a political message. They stand against cultural colonialism and for the development of an authentic Native American identity. Llorando se fue is the original version of the huge international hit La Lambada. Composed by the band founders, the Hermosa brothers, this is a beautiful melody representing the superb song writing skills of its authors.
