El Cóndor Pasa

I think this is probably one most famous tunes from Latin America. "El Condor Pasa" is a Peruvian song composed by Daniel Alomía Robles in 1913. There are several versions of this song. Simon & Garfunkel made a version of it in 1970, translating the lyrics into English.

This is a version in Quechua, the native language of millions of people in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador.

Cool! I didn't realize Simon and Garfunkle had used this for their famous song.
