Andean readings
    Land of winds > Recommended readings

Bibliographic materials (books, journals, papers, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, etc.) make up a rich source of information and key references. On the one hand, they introduce anyone to the universe of Andean music. On the other, they provide relevant, in-depth information on specific subjects, and also guidelines for improving the understanding of the Andean world and its liveliest elements.

This section will present short reviews of subject-related recommended readings, for interested people to turn to additional materials whenever they want to deepen the contents of the articles included in the magazine.
