INDIAN RITUAL MUSIC FROM CHICHICASTENANGO
The cobbled and dirt streets of “Chichi” come alive with the mesmerizing tones of the oboe-like chirimia, wood flute, and drums. These old sounds mix with the buzz of the marimba and a shifting chorus of trumpets and saxophones. Plus a bit of highly-charged Mexican folklore from San Cristobal de las Casas.
“This music is very charming — ragged at times, but with a heart.” – Kathryn Lyle, DOWN HOME MUSIC NEWSLETTER, January 1989.
