A Shot of Zany
Thanks to my friend and fellow blogger Gracy, I am happy to introduce you to the culmination of an art form that you might never have been exposed to before: the Peruvian music video. If you've never seen a Peruvian music video, featuring popular Andean huayno music (we always joked in our year in Peru that it was appropriately named as to our ears it sounds like whining), you are in for a treat. And even if you have been forced to sit through too many huayno music videos blaring in buses through the wee hours, this one is still worth your time. Not only does it feature three artists, all of them incredible in their own ways (truly!), it is also about a topic I've never encountered in huayno music before: Israel.
