5 stars In Argentina's bicentennial celebrations in 2010, the Jaivas were invited to participate. It was especially exciting to hear the song play La Poderosa Muerte (The Mighty Death). This work is a classic South American progressive music, rhythms and sounds imbued native. Among the latter we find zampoņa, quena, ocarina, trutucas, tarka. Alturas de Machu Pichu (At heights of Machu Pichu), the group's most progressive album, it achieved a unique fusion, incomparable. Andean folk, rock, psychedelic folk. The lyrics are by Pablo Neruda, thoughtful and intimate. Excels neat and virtuoso work of Claudio Parra in grand and electric piano. Variety is perceived in the nostalgia of The Mighty Death, Joy of Amor Americano and Sube a Nacer Conmigo Hermano, melancholy of Aguila Sideral melancholy and Antigua America. Great legacy left by this Chilean band.

And if we talk about this part of the world, Astor Piazzolla think should be included in ProgArchives, like Vox Dei.
