Formed in 1972 in Peru, El Polen were one of the first Andean psychedelic rock bands ever. Their music was a mixture of native instruments, quenas and antaras, with traditional rock instrumentation, creating a unique style where violins sounded like fuzz guitars.
Fuera de la Ciudad (1973)
Possibly the best folk album of all time. Timeless, innocent, impossibly beautiful, sadly lost in time. The 12 minute epic “El Hijo del Sol” is a pure bliss … hippie anthem, Peruvian style!
