Luzmila Carpio: Arawi

We end this week’s look at the songs of the high Andes of Peru by going to the work of Luzmila Carpio, a Bolivian-born woman who sings her own native language of Aymara as well as Quechua, the indigenous language of Perú.  Making a point to sing in native languages over Spanish, Luzmila has been a major proponent of indigenous songs including achieving skill as an instrumentalist, traditionally the purview of men.
