Video Description: Inti Legend and "Amor Andino" by Los Destellos.
Inti Legend: Manco Capac was a son of the sun god Inti and Mama Quilla, and brother of Pacha Kamaq. Manco Capac himself was worshipped as a fire and a Sun God. According to the Inti legend, Manco Capac and his siblings were sent up to the earth by the sun god and emerged from the cave of Pacaritambo carrying a golden staff, called ‘tapac-yauri’. Instructed to create a Temple of the Sun in the spot where the staff sank into the earth, they traveled to Cuzco via underground caves and there built a temple in honor of their father, the sun god Inti. During the journey to Cuzco, one of Manco’s brothers and possibly one of his sisters were turned into stone.
Manco Capac: In Inca mythology, Manco Capac (Quechua Manqo Qhapaq "splendid foundation", also Manku Qhapaq) was the first king of the Kingdom of Cuzco.

Chicha is an indigenous music that was spontaneously created by the culture clash of the '60s when the Indian population of the Peruvian Amazon discovered the Columbian pop music known as cumbia and American rock
& roll. As cheap electric instruments became available, Amazon Indians put together dance bands that used the syncopated beat of cumbia -- which sounds like a laid-back Latin cousin of ska -- as the foundation for melodies that sound like Andean folk tunes, played on electric guitar with lots of effects and Tex-Mex style Farfisa. When the Indians moved to the city, most notably Lima, they brought their music with them. Like Afro Peruvian music, chicha was frowned upon by the middle and upper classes, but unlike the music of Afro-Peru, chicha never gained an international following, until now. Oliver Conan, owner of the Barbés nightclub and record label, discovered the music on a recent trip to Peru. He also discovered that the label that put out a lot of the music had gone bankrupt and many of the master recordings were lost.
