Available in CD format.  The Double-Headed Serpent, by Inkuyo. Celestrial Harmonies, 1993. 61 minutes, 25 seconds.

The quartet Inkuyo consists of three men from South America (Bolivia and Chile) and a woman from the States. Focusing on the music of the "altiplano" or high plains--that region of the Andes never conquered by the Spanish--Inkuyo brings us traditional Andean folk songs and dances some dating back to the Incan Empire. Styles range from festive to melancholic are realized by an astounding array of rare and traditional instruments: wooden and bone flutes, various pan pipes and more familiar stringed instruments and drums. The cold, timeless winds of the altiplano whistle and pre-Columbian music is heard on this album from Inkuyo.
