Soundtrack for a Seawatcher

In Lima last week I picked up another album by Peruvian musician Miki González. He hybridises modern electronica with traditional melodies and folk music from all over Peru. Track 1 on his Iskay album, entitled Aves Marinas, features a bone flute made from a seabird bone, or more precisely a replica of an original one found in Caral dating from 3500BC. The track is also textured with some seabird ambience which I like to imagine is from Paracas and the Islas Ballestas.
