The Sunday Hangover: Inkuyo – Land of the Incas

Wow, sorry today’s “Sunday Hangover” is coming in so late. At the risk of sounding like an Onion article, today’s Sunday hangover is delayed due to a hangover.

Today I have been listening to some beautiful Andean music. The band Inkuyo was featured in Ron Fricke’s quintessential film, Baraka, and the scene in which the song appears is by far my favorite. It’s exciting and colorful, and Wipala contrasts nicely with much of the other hyper minimal songs included in the score. I finally broke down and bought their album, “Land of the Incas,” and I highly recommend that you do the same.

Inkuyo employs traditional Andean instruments which were truly mastered by the Incas. These include various forms of percussion, pan flutes, and one of my favorites, the charango. The time signatures are frequently misleadingly complex and the melodies are absolutely beautiful.

So, grab yourself another cup of coffee, Gatorade, bloody mary, or whatever you’re using to try to wash away the rest of last night, and couple it with Inkuyo’s fantastic album, “Land of the Incas.”

  1. Hi colleagues, fastidious post and pleasant
    urging commented at this place, I am actually enjoying by these.

  2. A wage advance online is considerably more convenient than going to some brick and mortar payday loan company and browsing line waiting.
    When you learn how to budget your income, you could find you’ll not
    must use money advance loans online or bank cards as often. If individuals
    borrowed responsibly then there would not be described as
    a concern.
