Encuentros (Meetings) CD review
by Chris Nickson
||My first encounter with Andean music was via Paul
Simons "El Condor Pasa," and I didnt like it one bit. In more recent
years, Ive heard more of this musicthe real thinkand it has grown on me.
Sukay have Americanized their ideas a little, so its rather like the Andes go
spaghetti western in places, but it works. The sound can both lull and groovequite a
feat for a few acoustic instruments and a voice. And what Sukay do with the Pan pipes
would make Zamfir green with envy. Its a slightly acquired taste, but so was Thai
food at one time --exotic and unusual;and now we're all eating it.
