Afro-Bolivian music

Given the lack of recordings of authentic Afro-Bolivian music, it has not been possible to provide any reviews. Among the few recordings of traditional saya chants we can mention the one made by Orisabol (Organización Integral Saya Afroboliviana) in 2004. Since the music of Bolivians of African descent does not fit into the commercial interests of the music industry, it has been spread through live performances (and their video recordings).

Reviews on recordings of morenadas, caporales and "Andean sayas" will be soon published in an issue specifically dedicated to them.
