Scope and Contents:
Edited film documents the Carnival celebrations of a remote community of Q'eros Indians in the Peruvian Andes. The Q'eros play pincullus (flutes) and sing to their alpacas to promote fertility. Singing and playing separately from each other, they produce a distinctive heterophonic sound which exemplifies a key connection between Andean culture and that of the Amazon jungle. Film also records negotiations between the filmmaker and the Q'eros for compensation for their participation and the distribution of that compensation.
