Does anyone know if there's some Andean music transcribed for piano solo out there? I once heard about a collection of piano solo transcriptions of many folk pieces from the Cuzco region, but so far I've never come close to finding it. :(
"ʻO ke alehulā ia, a ʻo ke kemowi ʻakekelo,
Ua kalaʻai a kāpoʻopoʻo ma ka makie,
Ua malāoa nā pōkūkū,
A kūhīhō nā poʻakaina ʻāiʻa."

Oh sorry, I didn't understand that Brazil and Argentina were excluded. I will try to find the right thread to post.

About the copyright this piece has plenty of performances and different arrangements on Youtube (piano solo, voice, instruments etc.) so I don't think that my arrangement and performance can bother someone.

But it was not as explicit as your message.
Many thanks and sincere apologies! I must not have searched it correctly on my end. I'll make a small edit and leave my reply since it has a few more keywords to make it easy for folks in the future to find with a standard query. I am glad this is/was known about, it's a nice little collection, that "Dominican Rhapsody" in particular looks very nice.
fyi I found someone who finally performed the Dominican Rhapsody after much chatter. Link will be in the youtube finds of the recording board 8-)

I found a link about Armando Carvajal Quiroz at the University of Chile:
http://www.uchile.cl/portal/presentacio ... jal-quiroz

It is available one of his piano compositions: “Cuatro Piezas para Niño” (sic). There are interesting musical concepts (e.g. “Tristeza”:“Sadness“).
Your comments will be much appreciated.

Enjoy!
