Memories of Peru: Damaris - Tusuykusun

A few days ago I discovered a wonderful piece of Peruvian music thanks to a well-made documentary on German TV. It brought back a lot of great memories of my pre-professional practise in exploration and various other visits to Peru between 2005 and 2008. Peruvian geobloggers: I didn't forget about you! The song interpreted by Damaris is sung in Quechua, the local language of the Inkas, with some occasional Spanish words or sentences. The title "Tusuykusun" can be translated as "Let's dance". I thought I share. It can also be found on Youtube HERE.

I love that song. It's a perfect mix of peruvian music styles and cultures. Thanks for sharing it.

Let us know whenever you're coming again and we'll set up another geomeeting.

I'm glad you like it! It's a wonderful mix of styles indeed.

And, I would love to come to Peru again! Once I have a job to pay for the trip I sure would. Keep you fingers crossed!
