Tumi Album Caral
La Nevada
Quimantu
Mauricio Venegas

A medium-tempo mid-summer solstice melody. The vibrant rhythm of the traditional Ecuadorian San juanito which coincides with the southern hemisphere longest day is used for this exuberant instrumental track with strong lead from the saxophone flavoured with the violin, traditional Andean flutes, panpipes, guitars and percussion.

Tumi Album Caral
El Manjar
Quimantu
Mauricio Venegas

A medium-tempo. The tropical Venezuelan waltz style of this track uses solo guitar for the beautifully lyrical melody with a rhythmic accompaniment of cuatro and maracas typical of the Joropo style.

Tumi Album Caral
Caral
Mauricio Venegas-Astorga
Mauricio Venegas

A slow-tempo melody. The sonorous flute opening of the song develops in intensity, the rhythmic feel propelling the listener on a journey as the electric violin and sabars are added to the mix.

The lyrics (Spanish) speak of the ancient civilisation of Caral, a people who lived with strength and powerful without violence.

Tumi Album Caral
Ayuthaya, The plane tree
Quimantu feat. Mauricio Venegas-Astorga
Traditional

Medium tempo, Ayuthaya, The Plane Tree: Opening with evocative Thai air played on solo harp the track moves into a contrasting Celtic jig underpinned by gently galloping Latin waltz rhythms, featuring harp, panpipes and charango, culminating in an exhilarating finish.

Tumi Album Caral
Vagalunas
Quimantu
Mauricio Venegas

The tenderness of this song has a prayer-like quality, with solo instrumental lines from violin, flute and viola bringing warmth and a sense of hope and forgiveness.

The lyrics (Spanish) are about a homeless child.

Tumi Album Caral
Lads of Alnwick
Quimantu
Traditional

A fast-tempo melody. This is an old English folk tune. Violin and bombo (The Andean Drum) accompany each other and create a lively and moving tune.

Tumi Album Caral
Paz
Mauricio Venegas-Astorga
Mauricio Venegas

A fast-tempo melody. The traditional sound of Cuban Son in this song has the powerful African rhythms of the Gambian sabars running under as an "Atlantic current". The eclectic mix continues with Andean panpipes, flutes and a solo from the Celtic harp. The lyrics demand "peace for humanity", with Gambian Wolof being used in addition to the Spanish of the verses.

Tumi Album Caral
Huayno Africano
Quimantu
Mauricio Venegas

A slow-tempo melody. The deceptively simple instrumental melody played first on the sanza (thumb-piano) and then with harp, solo guitar and a deep wooden flute has a gently hypnotic effect as of a long journey across the South American pampas or plains of Africa.

Tumi Album Caral
El Paucaron
Quimantu
Mauricio Venegas

A fast-tempo melody. This track in the style of a Bolivian Takirari gives a wonderfully spicy feel to the rhythm with the richness of the various members of the South American guitar family contrasting the mellow voice of the viola. A strong percussion section is headed up by the cajon and Andean flutes and panpipes complete the festive picture.

Tumi Album Caral
La Pandilla Del Barrio
Quimantu
Mauricio Venegas

A slow-tempo melody. "La Pandilla del Barrio" the little gang of friends from childhood is remembered in this sweet bolero, first loves, happy dreams, the bruised knees of childhood games, innocence and adventure. (Spanish lyrics)

Tumi Album Caral
Volver

A medium-tempo. This is Carlos Cardel tune which was originally sung in tango. A sad song.

Tumi Album Caral
Yerua
Quimantu

A charming waltz for solo guitar with plucked strings, violins and udu drum accompanying evokes simple pleasures and happy times
