Well, I just want to know something, both are different Prog Folk clasic bands very old, but perhaps Jethro Tull is much more famous than Los Jaivas and that could be shown in your votations, anyway let's see what happends. Thumbs Up

There were samples some time ago. Strange, I don't see them now.
 
I voted for Tull, though.

That's the problem with Prog Folk being so wide, Jethro Tull, has pastoral British music with some Celtic leanings and Los Jaivas played pure Andean music, there's no connection and no way to compare them.
 
Both are great in their own and particular style.

This is the point, I think. It's an innatural comparison and it's quite obvious for an european to have more confidence with Jethro Tull. From what I've heard (Alturas de Macchu Picchu basically), Los Jaivas are great too.

Has a whole I would have to say Jethro Tull. But thn again Ian and his boys don't have anything in their catalogue quite as moving as "Alturas..." and "Obras de Violeta Parra".

I prefer Los Jaivas at this time.  Alturas de Macchu Picchu is a fabulous album.  That they used the poet Pablo Neruda for the lyrics is a plus for me.  It's so beautiful and evocative.

Long, long before I'd ever heard of Los Jaivas, I was big on Jethro Tull.  Los Jaivas is fresher to my ear since I've only known them for about a year.  Also, I'm more interested in South American Prog at this time than English Prog.  English Prog was the start of my Prog journey.  Incidentally, there are lots of English Prog bands I'm still really into, but most of those bands are ones that I've only discovered (or re-discovered) during the last couple of years.  Jethro Tull was one of my Prog standards for many years so it's not as exciting anymore -- amazing band, though.

Could be, judging from the replies it's a pretty even split.  I consider both equally good in their own ways, but since I'm newer to Los Jaivas I find them more exciting. Okay, it's more than that.  Los Jaivas' style appeals more to me.  I like the exoticness, to my ear, of the folk elements.

I'm far more familiar with Tull as I only know the Alturas... album (which is their highest-rated here anyway).  Some might be voting who don't even know one full album by Jaivas (or just the streaming song at this site).  It would be rather pointless to vote if one didn't know any of both bands' work.

I'm sure some prefer to vote for the underdog, and I wouldn't be surprised is there's more than one vote here deliberately against Jethro Tull by people who barely know Los Jaivas.

Now, the outcome might have been different for me if the British Prog Folk representative was Gryphon...  I REALLY like Gryphon (and have for many years).

For those who don't know Los Jaivas, they should check out the excellent streaming mp3 at this site HERE.  I don't think Jethro Tull came out with any records nearly as good as Alturas in the 80's.  I haven't heard LJ's 70's output, so I can't compare it personal-quality-wise to JT's 70's albums.
