Prior to the arrival of Incantation, the indigenous music of South America in general and The Andes in particular remained relatively unknown outside that continent. The BBC television programme Flight Of The Condor changed all of that, giving widespread exposure to the panpipe music of South America. The fact that the group who provided the haunting music were all British didn t appear to matter, and within weeks Forbes Henderson (guitar), Tony Hinnigan (quenas, sikus, tarka, percussion, guitar, guitarron and pinkillo), Simon Rogers (charango, guitar, tiple and percussion), Chris Swithinbank (sikus, voice guitar, guitar and guitarron) and Mike Taylor (quenas, sikus, anata and bombo) were enjoying hit albums and singles. This album is a re-issue of their most successful release Cacharpaya, which sold more than 100,000 copies first time around.

The music is really beautiful and something very different to what most music lovers are used to.
Don't have a record player any more, but well worth the money.
Always liked Incantaion, shame I can't afford to go to South America.
Give it a try, you might like it.
This album is the perfect way to relax, possibly while reading a book.
