El Cóndor Pasa

That's the kind of interpretation of El Cóndor Pasa that I like most (no big orchestra, no hi-tech processing, just pure, traditional, 'organic' sound going straight to the heart).

Solzhenitsyn on art

"Not everything assumes a name. Some things lead beyond words. Art inflames even a frozen, darkened soul to a high spiritual experience. Through art we are sometimes visited — dimly, briefly — by revelations such as cannot be produced by rational thinking. Like that little looking-glass from the fairy-tales: look into it and you will see — not yourself — but for one second, the Inaccessible, whither no man can ride, no man fly. And only the soul gives a groan..." --Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Nobel lecture, 1970 - via wikiquote)
