CantoAndino: El Condor Pasa

CantoAndino perform El Cóndor Pasa ("Flight of the Condor"), a song by the Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles,  which he wrote in 1913 and is based on traditional Andean folk tunes. You can also hear a vocal cover version in Spanish of Paul Simon's lyrics ("If I Could"), to the Andean music, by Esther Ofarim here. And there is also Paul Simon's version here. Enjoy.
