Putumayo Records, a label known for putting together accessibly curated world music samplers, delivers the compilation Music of the Andes. Pulling from a variety of sources, this collection focuses largely on the modern 21st century folk music of Peru, Bolivia, and the surrounding Andean mountain region. Featuring a mix of vocals and folk instruments like the ten-stringed charango and the pan flute, acts like Rumillajta and Dueto Nocturnal take a classic approach to the region's traditional music. Other artists like Alejo Garcia and Fauna & Pascuala Ilabaca incorporate modern influences like electric guitars and drums into classic folk styles. The diverse compilation paints an eclectic picture of Andean music's past and present.
