Music will be in charge by the three Puente de la Vega brothers who formed APU in 1983, touring Peru, Bolivia and Argentina before relocating to the UK in 1989, following a tour in 'Incantation'. They have been joined by virtuoso contemporaries from Cusco's College of Music in Peru like Kaliran who have played their traditional Music of the Sacred Valley since childhood.
Edinburgh Festival Times: "The power of the sound produced held row after row spellbound. The energy and enthusiasm of these musicians was intense. numbers accelerated until they exploded with appreciative applause."
The Scotsman: "Definitely one of the funkiest Andean outfits round... they refresh the traditional music of the reigon with the abundance of vibrant feeling a high spirited dance sensibility and a Latin bump and grind... APU have developed a powerful and exciting mix of traditional and modern compositions. They combine breathtaking pipe and flute skills searing Latin American samba / salsa/ cumbia rhythms."
