LUZMILA CARPIO Cantos Quechua y Aymaras (Bolivia, 1989)

Luzmila Carpio: "I use the language and music of my people, that of the Indian land, of our mountains, of our lakes, of the air we breathe. I sing my love for the land which witnessed my birth, the land of my ancestors. I speak of Pachamama, Mother Earth, of harmony and love, of the role of women in our civilization, of coexistence between man and nature within a cosmic order, of our traditions, which must not be lost."

I love this like crazy. Luzmila Carpio rings out like an authentic madwoman, channelling free-spirited Andean comtemporary (avant?) folk with the self-assured, inspired strangeness of a near-shaman. Hers is an incredible sound. And for me to call her mad is just the loftiest, most admiring praise of her creative character that I can possibly seems to muster. It would seems that our fair blogosphere has thusfar yielded only a 128kbps version of this disc, but I can say its sounds plenty good to me. Heavenly music. Highly recommended, friends.
