Inka Pacha was founded in 1989 in Peru, South America. Each member of the group studied music at the University of Lima. The exotic sounds of traditional Incan music can be dated back as much as five hundred years ago. This represents one of the most preserved forms of Native American culture. Having played throughout Europe (including Germany, Holland, and France), they have adapted some western influences that have helped them forge their own definitive style. The music of Inka Pacha is a rich cultural experience that enlightens its listeners with stories of an ancient culture of the Andes mountains. The principal aim of our group "INCA PACHA" is to cultivate the native music of the ethnic groups Quechua and Aymara (Incas), to maintain the traditions, customs, and individual languages of their heritage. These two groups are the native communities of the Andes mountains of Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Both Quechua and Aymara have their roots in cultures more than 1000 years old, and they possess a remarkable musical history. The spiritual harmony of man, earth, and the natural environment is a central theme of the musical traditions of the indian villages. Inca Pacha unites musicians from Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador, and here they offer traditional and new melodies performed on the instruments of their heritage. The expressive and soulful songs, some sung in the ancient languages, are rhythmic and romantic the breath and heart of village life.Recorded 1995 and 1996 Berlin, Germany Produced by Jaime Rodriguez (Wayra), P 1997 Inca Pacha
