Edmundo P. Zaldivar seems to be a a deeply revered purveyor of the celebratory Andean-Argentinian folksong known as the Carnavalito. At least, that's what I think the back cover says. I personally have a deep love for Andean melodies, and was more than a little pleased with the magic of the arrangements herein. The occasional addition of piano, violin, dulcimer(?) & bassoon(?) seems to offer a charming, otherworldly sense of surprise to the sound of Zaldivar's wonderful conjunto. Spanish/English bilterates, if any of you have the time & energy, I would truly love to know what these cover notes are telling us. Just found this luminous treasure for only 3 bucks a few weeks back. !0" microgroove. Year unknown. 320 rip by yours truly. Enjoy.
