We is Us: Nosotrosound and "Chaskis"

Chaksis by Nosotros on Grooveshark

Today our random tune is called Chaskis, and is by the Arizona band Nosotrosound. Originally known as Nosotros, they had to change their name because it was copyrighted by a New Mexico band. Nosotrosound started in Mexico in the late 70s and perform tunes from Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Mexico using traditional instruments. Note: our good friend David Seleme, who Megan and I have known for over 25 years, is a member of this band. Chaskis can be found on Nosotrosound's 1991 album De Los Caminos (under the band name Nosotros).
