5 stars Hello for all...I wasn't able to hold up myself and i want to complete the ideas writen by Steves and Hugues. They are pretty right!. I'm chilean, so i know enough Latin american folk music. Besides, it remains to talk about Violeta Parra, who compossed the songs that Jaivas's album features ( watch out: no at all as you listened on this album! this arrangments were made by Los Jaivas ). She was a chilean folk songwriter and farmer song compiler, and she traveled around the world showing her work in '50s and mid '60s. She is the one of the most important folk singer in Chile. More of important folk bands (protest songs) of later '60s and '70s were inspired by Violeta. If you get her songs, first records of this songs, you'll apreciate in a better way Jaivas's work. You'll see the distance and the nearness between both, and how Los Jaivas has honor and yield tribute to Violeta, re-inventing all songs in a way of amazing beautiful and complexity music, a musical maturity, as that guys (up) told you. Los Jaivas are the prog sons of Violeta! I'ts a masterpiece! Pancho
