La Música Peruana

I had the good fortune to be invited to attend a concert of  traditional Peruvian music on Monday night   – 8th July, at the ICPNA in Miraflores.  I had seen some examples previously in Spanish lessons and also have watched some videos on you tube . There were several acts, all featuring guitars and vocals. .And, even though it was filmed on my lowly little Ipod, I have finally produced a video and uploaded it to You Tube.

It was not the usual type of concert that I would attend and it certainly did not evoke the the same feelings that a Hawkwind performance would. Nevertheless, on hearing that Morrissey was in Lima and due to perform, I am certain, of the two concerts, La Música Peruana was the more uplifting. I am sure in the coming months, I will get to sample much more of this blend of cultures. I am already weighing up the prospect of attending a similar show next week.
