Peru: Amazonas - Condor Pasa

Ancient Peru was the seat of several prominent Andean civilizations, most notably that of the Incas whose empire was captured by the Spanish conquistadors in 1533. Peruvian independence was declared in 1821, and remaining Spanish forces defeated in 1824. After a dozen years of military rule, Peru returned to democratic leadership in 1980, but experienced economic problems and the growth of a violent insurgency.

In the recent years, the presidential election of 2006 saw the return of Alan Garcia Perez who, after a disappointing presidential term from 1985 to 1990, has overseen a robust macroeconomic performance.

Peru is far away from Greece but i do love that country! I consider it as my "third" country, after Mali, Africa (oh, i must tell you that "i come from many countries")... Due to my love to that country, i prepared a short tribute of 3 posts. We 'll listen three songs by the famous Peruvian group which is called "Amazonas". The song of this post has the title "Condor Pasa"...

Το Περού είναι ο πιό αγαπημένος κι ονειρεμένος προορισμός και για μένα φίλε μου και ωωω πρέπει να σου πω ότι ,η σημερινή ανάρτησή σου με συγκίνησε ακούγοντας τ'αγαπημένο αυτό κομμάτι στην πιό όμορφη εκτέλεση που έχω ακούσει .
Οι περουβιανοί φυσικά είναι οι πλέον κατάλληλοι με τα όργανα που διαθέτουν για να αποδώσουν πανέμορφα το Condor Pasa.
Καλημέρα ¨:)))

Το ξέρω πόσο αγαπάς αυτή τη χώρα και τη μουσική της αγαπητή Αλίκη. Απλώς, "θα κάνεις υπομονή" και θα ακούσεις και τα άλλα δύο κομμάτια που έχω ετοιμάσει. Μάλιστα, στην τρίτη ανάρτηση, έχω και μια φωτογραφία που σου αρέσει πολύ. Δεν είναι ότι δεν την ξέρεις, ίσα ίσα είναι από ένα μέρος που δε μπορείς να μη το λατρέψεις...

Καλή Κυριακή προς το παρόν... :))

ah dear Diatton, el Condor Pasa is a typical peruvian song, and it brings me back so many memories from my childhood! i grew up in Mexico, but my mom had this group of friends from Peru who were hikers, they used to hike the mexican volcano Popocatepelt, and this song was one of their favorite ones to listen to, also one of them played the flute and used to play it for us... it's a lovely song!! thank you for sharing!

and i am glad to read your heart belongs to many countries, i guess mine too, every culture has something different to offer and by friends from the world, one starts loving other cultures... thanks to YOU i know in Greece there's people who love really great music!! love reading your blog, thank you!

Dear Berenice, it was good for me to know that this song brought memories to you! In other words, i see that we have a very nice communication where the post of one person touches the soul of the other! (i don't know to write english well but i keep on trying).

About the fact that i love the music of many countries, it's true! If you ever visit the other blog of mine (http://diattonsworld.blogspot.com)you 'll see in the contents of the blog that i have music from many many countries, such as Algeria, Angola, Belarus, Bolivia, Cape Verde, Cuba, Egypt, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Spain and many many others! I have music even form Benin and Guinea Bissau! Mali is like my second country, you know!

About the other thing you wrote me, oh, there aren't many persons in my country that they like the music and the culture of the various places of the world. We are such a few, you can't imagine! More people here like the modern Greek music (oh, the traditional kind here is wonderful and amazing but the modern one is silly).

Finishing this comment, i 'll tell you this. I also like reading your blog dear Berenice. Maybe, i don't write you comments in every post (it's the language sometimes), but you must know that i am a reader of yours!
