"Land of winds", a digital magazine on Andean music and culture, drew to a close in July-August 2014 with the launch of issue number 20. In the course of four years' publication (2010-2014), "Land of winds" explored and celebrated the musical and cultural expressions of peoples and communities from every corner of the Andean America.
The published content will remain accessible for readers on this website. We will continue our research work and dissemination activities (including publications and dedicated briefs) in other forms and places.
Many thanks and kind regards.
