3 stars With this album the Jaivas defines their style that in the musical will be dominated by the forceful rythmical base that Gabriel Parra in their drums and Claudio Parra in acoustic piano imposes; this plus the peculiar vocalization of Gato Alquinta will be the mark "jaivas". As far as lirics, now more direct and in clear vindication of "flower to power" that in that time it was in his fullness in his country, gave to a great push and popularity to emblematic songs like "Todos Juntos", "En la Quebrá del ají" and the hofmaniana illumination of " Ayer Caché" all which became true hymns. The use of native instruments, specially flutes far better is worked that in its previous disc. Without doubt it is a disc that can be enjoyed and that has like added merit the espontaneidad of a music that escaped of conventional styles stablished by the market, but that nevertheless it had very good welcome in the public; with this base soon their great works would come. Recommendable, 3,5 stars. Note. - The titles above indicated correspond to the sum of two editions: "Todos Juntos" ("EMI), and IRT/ALBA version also known like" the Window ". The song "Indio Hermano" was a single recorded in 1973.
