Inka Trail Connections – CAMPOS, J.C. • CIFUENTES, S. • GARRIDO-LECCA, C. • LENG, A.
Norwegian Radio Orchestra • Harth-Bedoya
In this podcast, Raymond Bisha takes us on a journey across South America, making musical stops in the countries of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Colombia. The Inca Trails that connected these lands and their people produced a sharing of ideas and cultures: ancient traditions of indigenous sounds and rhythms fused with cultural influences of European colonisers. The composers of the works on this new album—a number of which are receiving their first commercial recording—were all inspired by this musical legacy, by the people of their homeland, and by the land itself.
