Pampa De La Quinua



Recently found these videos of these colorfully dressed children singing this tune. Not only do they sing the same song, they also are sway in the exact same manner. The song is something called "Pampa De La Quinua", but a Google search turned up almost nothing. I am assuming these children are Peruvian and that this song is probably based off of this. The song is beautiful and I'm completely obsessed with these videos.

There are a couple good collections of Peruvian Huayno Music that Arhoolie put on CD a few years ago. These mostly came from 45's released from the 50's into the 70's.

I found another video of children from Ayacucho singing.
