There have been many efforts over the years to weave Native American rhythm and flute into modern compositions. I have found most of these "Sedona Sound" efforts to be lacking in some sense. Not so in the case of Apurimac III by Cusco. This is New Age genre album that breaks out of its frequently all too mundane musical genre and delivers a virtuoso performance anyone can appreciate. The albums opens fast and strong with its rendition of the "Ghost Dance", probably the most imediately recognizable tribal rhythm of the American Indians. It continues to alternately soar and settle through a number of compositions, expertly and seamlessly integrating drums, flutes, keyboards and standard western-guitar cord progressions into an amazing work that defies simple description. From its powerful opening to mournful closing (perhaps reminiscent of the decline of Native America), you will not be disappointed!
This is the best CD I have ever heard so far from any New Age Music. Apurimac III has incorporated Peruvian instruments with other Native American music with its own modern flare to create an array of sounds that overpowers the soul. Each song incorporates every aspect of Indian culture from tribal rituals to hunting. Every song is long providing a non-stop journey through Indian life. Compared to other music that will gather dust after listening a few times, This CD will never lose its popularity. Its melodies will remain in my mind forever. I have already gotten many of my friends to listen to it and I am thinking of buying Apurimac II. I don't know how anything can top Cusco's music. It is the greatest. I honestly believe listeners will become all-time fans.
I like New Age stuff in general, and the way the Native American tones wrap into the regular styles is just beyond great. While I wouldn't have minded slightly more aggressive tones in a few places, it's still awesome listening.
