Viento de los Andes: “Zorritos” (1999)

Viento de los Andes is effectively Jose Arciniegas, who plays indigenous music of Ecuador and the Andes regions (as well as original compositions) on bamboo flutes and harrangos, a small guitar-like instrument.

As his website puts it:

Jose began to play music at the age of ten. He sang played quitar, quena and sampona and serenaded the girls outside their windows with love songs.

In America most girls would rather be serenaded by a Chris Brown song, but it’s their loss.
