The musical thread which runs through the Andes extends back thousands of years, with roots in the ancient culture of the Incas, and it is strong enough to have successfully resisted the Spanish conquest and the modern forces of Western civilization. The Andean Indians preservation of indigenous music plays a vital role in the preservation of their cultural identity. From small towns and remote mountain villages to the capital city of Lima, Peru's popular Huaynos music connects even the most isolated groups of people.
