About my piece:
I found it interesting to make a man playing the siku.
The siku or Spanish zampoña), is a traditional Andean panpipe. This instrument is the main instrument used in a famous song called “EL condor pasa” or “The Condor passes”) is an orchestral musical piece from the zarzuela El Cóndor Pasa by the Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles, written in 1913 and based on traditional Andean music, specifically folk music from Peru. Since then, it has been estimated that around the world, more than 4000 versions of the melody have been produced, along with 300 sets of lyrics. In 2004, Peru declared this song as part of the national cultural heritage.1 This song is now considered the second national anthem of Peru.
It is the best-known Peruvian song to anglo-centric radio play due to a 1970 cover by Simon & Garfunkel on their Bridge over Troubled Water album. Their version is called “El Condor Pasa (If I Could)” (https://youtu.be/QqJvqMeaDtU).
