Amor Americano - Los Jaivas, Pablo Neruda - Alturas De Machu Picchu (Vinyl, LP, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
This song echoes earlier Los Jaivas folk material, but uses the instruments of Western rock, not native Andrean folk. Then there's the phased vocals of the eerie compelling masterpiece Aguila Sideral, which layers piano, guitar and then pan-pipes over an unobtrusive rhythm, in a truly unforgettable manner. As for Antigua America, Claudio Parra's piano playing I believe it is he, even if brother Eduardo is the other keyboardist is simply stunning and Gabriel's drumming is also extremely creative.
When the band is in full flight with dancing guitar and piano lines, it is thing of pure beauty. The exuberant Latin brass theme of Sube A Nacer Conmigo Hermano also bristles with life, and although this sort of music is nowadays the purvue of acts like The Gypsy Kings, Los Jaivas' arrangements are excellent.
The violent power of the vocals always takes surprise me when I return to this album. Final is just that Alturas De Macchu Picchu is deeply emotional, steeped in legend and history, a seamless fusion of what was then past and present.
This album is a remarkable folk album, with rich South American instrumentation and traditional prog guitars, synth Pablo Neruda - Alturas De Machu Picchu (Vinyl drums.
The album starts off on a light note with a haunting pan flute intro song leading into the stellar 'La Poderosa Muerde', easily the best song on the album with sad melody on piano and flute before moving into quite a depressing motif with some excellent guitar and some interesting bell-like synth work later leading into some authoritative chanting before ending triumphantly.
There are some weak points on the album though notably 'Amor Americano', it's not a bad song but it's a bit of a departure from most of the songs on the album, it's a fairly benign song with an odd latin time signature and that's about it. Overall though Alturas Del Machu Pichu is a great album for fans of Andean folk, symphonic prog and folk in general, highly recommended. There are enough reviews on this album, so I guess no one will read mine :.
Breathtaking from start to finish, powerful and gentle, when needed. Sometimes the band sounds like an orchestra because of lots instruments used especially dual keyboards, grand piano and synthesisers, and different ethnic woodwinds.
No weak moments at all, but my personal Amor Americano - Los Jaivas are epical ''La poderosa muerte'' I'm not too original here and catchy ''Sube a Nacer Conmigo Hermano''. Great poetry by Pablo Neruda. If you, like me, don't speak Spanish, you can find translations to many languages. A must have. Very good starting point for those who are new to the band's music, only the same-name DVD is better.
The central piece of this work is the long just over eleven minutes "La Poderosa Muerte" the mighty death. It is indeed a very good song, especially during the Amor Americano - Los Jaivas parts. Vocals are weak and dull unfortunately. The band is closely related to his "tierra" and often cites the Andean mountains or landscapes in their lyrics. I guess that the fact to be far away from your country only increases the need to talk about your origins.
They left Chile a long time ago by now in 73not only to escape the fury of the regime but simply because they wanted to integrate new sounds to their music. They travelled and they stayed in Argentina till 77 but were playing live gigs in Uruguay, Paraguay and Brazil from their new "home" base. Because of its cultural aura as well as its central location. It was a complete new slife for "Los Jaivas".
They had to start from scratch, since they were completely unknown on the old continent. Starting with this effort, their albums will be released on both sides of the Atlantic and their fame will grow internationally as well. This album is a considered as one of their most important and it is true that it holds some good music. A bit more rocking than usual. The great guitar sound I have already mentioned is back again during "Sube A Nacer Conmigo Hermano" too short, unfortunately. But what kills me are the below average vocals and these awful trumpets.
Reminds me more of some parties while I pay a visit to my Mexican step family. Several songs holding weak lyrics as well "Antigua America", "Aguila Sideral". This album is their more "adventurous" so far. But a song as "Amor Americano" is fully representative of their native music and Amor Americano - Los Jaivas very few prog elements.
One of the weakest numbers together with the opening and short "De Aire Al Aire". I was expecting more of these "Alturas De Machu Picchu". The great "La Poderosa Muerte" seriously helps this album above the average territories. A powerful and fully prog song featuring a great beat and some excellent guitar work. The closing Final is the only one during which vocals are on par with the music.
A very sentimental piece of music. Three stars. I think the music is unique and shows a significant grandeur as in the highlight and magnum opus La Poderosa Muerte which is by no means a wonderful passionate crescendo that you'd want never stop. This is really a gem and I'm proud to have it in my personal discography.
The whole record is more into the folk side as is quite evident listening to songs as Amor Americano and Sube a Nacer Conmigo, Hermano Aguila Sideral is instead darker with dynamic bass lines, pan flute and filtered vocals. Amor Americano - Los Jaivas America starts off with pan flute and then gines the scene to fast classic piano playing and a strong rythm session.
Excellent happy-andinean-symphonic prog in the second half. This is certainly a miliar stone in the whole southern america prog experience. A legendary testament for the perfect balance between music and lyrics. The exception to the generally overriding folk flavour can be found in spades in the eleven minute wonder that is "La Poderosa Muerte", where Los Jaivas comes close to defining some type of new genre.
The suite is highlighted by the best vocals of the album, stately shifts of pace from pensive to harried, and an overarching purpose. It can also be appreciated from listen 1 to n, where n approaches infinity.
While "Alturas de Macchu Picchu" is an essential classic of progressive folk and one of the best from South America, its over-reliance on archetypal tunes prevents it from reaching the peaks of which it speaks. You took me by surprise I confess. I'm sure it's an awesome review. Los Jaivas Alturas de Machu Picchu 5, Album).
El golpe de estado de patrocinado por la CIA obliga a la banda a huir a Argentina en donde grabarian algunos discos y posteriormente a Paris en donde grabarian la obra maestra que es Alturas de Machu Picchu Uno de los puntos centrales de el album es la letra de las canciones, las cuales estan basadas en el poema del mismo nombre del laureado con el premio Nobel: Pablo Neruda. Aqui, se retratan la belleza natural y etnica de America Latina, velando por que la hermandad entre paises se haga presente para enfrentar los problemas del mundo.
Esta atmosfera mistica se expande aun mas en la "epica" del album: La Poderosa Muerte la cual comienza con una introduccion de trutruca a la que se unen el piano y la quena, para dar finalmente paso a las voces, bateria y sintetizadores los cuales se van mezclando en bellas armonias y complejas demostraciones musicales entre las que destacan las impresionantes demostraciones de los sintetizadores y la guitarra electrica y, en especial, la voz de Gato Alquinta, la cual, aun no siendo extremadamente afinada, logra demostrar la emocion de su canto desde la primera nota.
En Aguila Sideral y Antigua America se continua con la complejidad musical de pianos, sintetizadores y guitarras que, juntos siguen creando la atmosfera magistral evocadora de la magia de Los Andes. Sin embargo en canciones como Amor Americano y Sube a Nacer Conmigo Hermano esta vision mistica de latinoamerica se deja de lado para enfocarse mas en su gente, estas dos canciones logran aplicar de gran manera toques progresivos al folklore latino, mostrando la calidez y alegria que siempre ha caracterizado a los latinos.

A mediados de agosto deel grupo se embarca en una gira en la que no presenta el disco, salvo por el tema "Sube a Nacer Conmigo Hermano", por falta de tiempo para los ensayos.
