Hidden threads of Peru : Q'ero textiles by Ann Pollard Rowe( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Q'ero is an isolated indigenous community on the eastern slope of the Andes. In this harsh environment, a rich and complex textile tradition has endured from pre-Hispanic times. Woven from the hair of local alpacas, the colorful shawls, ponchos, bags, and other textiles produced are worn daily and form part of the rituals and ceremonies of Q'ero. Hidden Threads of Peru combines ethnography, anecdote, and textile art to offer fascinating new insights into a culture that can trace its traditions back to the Inca empire. The Q'ero people themselves discuss the significance of the fabrics they make and the nature of their Andean life, while photographs taken from the early twentieth century to the present day illustrate their daily life and rituals, as well as -- in sumptuous full color -- the textiles themselves, revealing the evolution and range of patterns over a one-hundred-year period

Mountain music of Peru by John Cohen( Visual )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic documentary on the centuries-old music of the Andes demonstrates the importance or the region's musical heritage in preserving the cultural identity of the impoverished native peoples. The musical thread that runs through the Andes extends back past the ancient culture of the Incas, and it is strong enough to have successfully resisted both the Spanish conquest and the forces of modern Western culture. This musical journey travels from small towns and remote mountain villages to the capital city of Lima, showing how Peru's popular music connects even the most isolated people. This outstanding documentary will delight students and generate thought and discussion in classes in cultural anthropology, Latin American and Andean studies, ethnomusicology, popular culture, and global and development studies -- any class in which cultural identity is considered. It was produced by renowned filmmaker and musician John Cohen
Q'eros : the shape of survival( Visual )

13 editions published between 1979 and 2006 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic documentary provides a multifaceted exploration of the way of life of the Q'eros Indians of Peru, who have lived in the Andes for more than 3,000 years. Their economy is nearly self-sufficient and their location, at 14,000 feet, is well adapted for their alpacas (raised for wool) and their llamas (beasts of burden). The Q'eros employ the same agricultural methods, play the same panpipes and flutes, and weave cloth using the same patterns as those described by Spanish chroniclers in the 16th century. The film examines Q'eros music in its shepherd and religious functions and shows weaving as an integral part of family life."Q'eros: The Shape of Survival" will engage students and generate discussion in a wide range of courses in cultural anthropology, Latin American and Andean studies, ethnomusicology, comparative religion, and the arts and humnanities. It was produced by renowned filmmaker and musician John Cohen
Dancing with the Incas( Visual )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary film documents the most popular music of the Andes -- Huayno music -- and explores the lives of three Huayno musicians in a contemporary Peru torn between the military and the Shining Path guerrillas. The film shows how ancient Incan music passed down through the centuries has a contemporary life of its own in the cities of Peru. Lima on Sundays is alive with Huayno music, in which one hears authentic Inca melodies performed on every conceivable type of instrument. In the moody lyrics, the musings of oppressed people assume an existential and timeless quality even when a carnival atmosphere prevails. This is one of the few ethnographic films that deals with complex issues of cultural mixture. Rather than focusing on a single community or ethnic group, the film investigates a broad cultural region and illustrates what happens to it as it confronts the commercial traditions and demands of the West."Dancing with the Incas" will generate thought, analysis, and discussion in a wide array of courses in cultural anthropology, Latin American studies, ethnomusicology, popular culture, and the arts and humanities. It was produced by renowned filmmaker and musician John Cohen
