"A collection of 26 essays in Spanish and English on the relationship between music and cosmology in the Andes. Sections deal with cosmology in the areas of dualism, ceremonial myth and ritual, traditional religious festivals, song texts, tradition, and modernity. Baumann treats symbolic dualism and cosmology in Andean music, while Schechter focuses on Quichua sanjuán as cultural macro- and microcosm. Schlegelberger highlights cosmological aspects in Andean religion, and Vokral treats the social context of carnival song texts. Cánepa Koch writes on identity and modernity in Andean dance"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
