3 stars Another excellent chapter in the 70's South American tradition. "Cancion Del Sur" was LOS JAIVAS' 5th release combining progressive rock with aztec mysticism. At this stage in their life cycle, they were a 6 piece outfit mixing a vast array of instrumentation and developing a very progressive approach.. of course following this release they would release their masterpiece "Alturas De Macchu Picchu". In many way this album really stands up equally to "Alturas" with grand symphonic keyboard swoops, caressing vocals, classical guitar work , lots of great percussion and that South American flare. If you are looking for a real honest and original sound (They are not trying to sound like anyone but themselves) then I strongly suggest you pick up this album... They have not masked their musical traditions and the mix of genres is quite amazing... "A jim-dandy pre-cursor"
