El condor pasa PERU EL KONDOR PASSA 1 day ago   05:06

The music of Peru is an amalgamation of sounds and styles drawing on Peru's Andean musical roots and Spanish musical influences.

Native Peruvian music is dominated by the national instrument, the charango. The charango is a type of mandolin, and was invented in the Viceroyalty of Peru by musicians imitating Spanish lutes and guitars. In the Canas and Titicaca regions, the charango is used in courtship rituals, symbolically invoking mermaids with the instrument to lure the woman to the male performers. Until the 1960s, the charango was denigrated as an instrument of the rural poor. After the revolution in 1959, which built upon the Indigenismo movement (1910--1940), the charango was popularized among other performers. Music of Chinese and Japanese settlers greatly influenced Peruvian music.
