"An exciting selection from the many traditional forms of Ecuadorian music. In February 1993 a Swedish production team went on a gruelling tour which resulted in a series of recordings featuring no fewer than sixteen groups from different parts of the country. Here we have evocative Andean music of pre- Columbian ancestry, we have the traditional music of towns and cities -- full of dance rhythms one moment and caressingly sentimental the next -- with its European and Spanish heritage, and here too we have the stirring popular dance music that is rooted in African tradition, not to mention the unknown music of the Jivaro Indians in the rain forests of the Amazonas. More than two hours of varied, exciting sound experiences from regions whose music, until now has been virtually unknown."
