Early '80s Chilean Prog

I'll just leave this here...

"La Poderosa Muerte" from Alturas de Machu Picchu (1981)

Just learned about these guys - Los Jaivas, from Chile and then the world. From their 1981 album, based entirely on a famous Pablo Neruda poem, "The Heights of Macchu Picchu." With a very Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii-ish video, shot on location at majestic Macchu Picchu in Peru.

Alturas de Macchu Picchu
Here's part 2...

"La Poderosa Muerte" from Alturas de Machu Picchu (1981)

That's almost Magma-esque! A lot of their stuff seems to straddle the line between prog and folklórica, which is cool. Although they released albums from the '70s through the '00s, so I'd bet there's some variety.

"Mira Niñita," etc..., from television (1972)

Hippies en Sudamérica!
