Overview

Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Chapters: Delfin Quishpe, Julio Jaramillo, Juan Fernando Velasco, Beatriz Parra Durango, Danilo Parra, Diana Mera, Jorge Contreas Herrera. Excerpt: Delfín Quishpe (born December 1977 in Guamote, Ecuador) is an Indigenous Kichwa Ecuadorian singer-songwriter, performing in a style he calls "Andean techno-folklore". His popularity largely comes from the comical nature of his music. Quishpes song "Torres Gemelas" (Twin Towers) remains the song that has received most attention.

In April 2010 Defín Quishpe released the pro-Israeli song "En tus tierras bailaré" with the two kitschy peruvian "You-tube stars" Wendy Sulca and Tigresa del Oriente. The song received attention in Latin American media and got rapidly more than one milion hits in a few weeks. The song has later been called a "Youtube We are the World" by Calle 13 singer Residente.. ... More: http://booksllc.net/?id=10163977
