    Peruvian music in general is my favorite. Because of the places in Peru that I visit, I am attracted and inspired by their folk music. I think it is because their melodies reflect the place and its people that I did not know and that it is a world to discover.

    The songs remind me of my rural school in Ayacucho; my peasant parents and friends; They remind me that my country is immense and that it has a great history that I have not yet finished discovering.
