Direct from Lima, Peru we are pleased to present Tortoras de Peru, a great trio consisting of Eloy Ramos, Victor Quiroz and Jacinto Ciudad who perform both classic and original Andean style music. And check out
Charango player Victor who pulls off a "Jimi Hendrix" style maneuver midway into the classic song "El Condor Pasa."

We recorded classical guitarist Andres Ivanchenko in a great park in the town of Barquisimeto, Venezuela. Barquisimeto is known as "la ciudad de musica" and
we couldn't agree more. Watch as Andres performs a fine rendition of "Serenata Ingenua."

The first video we ever recorded in Merida, Venezuela around December,
2005. The Puppetmaster uses a keyboard and a makeshift percussion instrument which triggers dolls to dance when he plays his strange carnival-like tunes. The kids really loved this!

One of the first videos we ever recorded in Merida, Venezuela around December
20, 2005. This very basic video (we had no lighting gear yet, and only
one fair microphone) demonstrates the amazing playing ability of these
fine student musicians from the Escuela de música,
Universidad de Los Andes located in central
Merida. It's gotten 1000's of hits on you tube and remains
one of my personal favorites!
