Radiohuayco: Ethnography of the Sound of Lima

A project that explored the frontier between anthropology and art (2003 – 2007)

Peru is a country with 12 languages, and all of its ethnicities converge at Lima. Radiohuayco was an attempt to capture the sound of that melting pot: Music, text, photo, made by a collective comprised by musicians, visual artist, social scientists, with afro-Peruvian, Andean, Amazonic and coastal backgrounds. The results were published as a multimedia document (Catholic University of Peru, Embassy of Spain 2007) including texts, images and sound. It pioneered interdisciplinary studies in ethnomusicology in Peru.
