Here’s a BBC story about the Baroque musical tradition in Bolivia:

Why Bolivian baroque rocks

There will be more from me about music from the missions of Bolivia, Brazil, Peru and Mexico this week.

Here’s a little tease from the ensemble Florilegium:

    Y-a-t-il un disque de cet ensemble bolivien Florilegium ? J’aimerais en avoir les références s’il vous plait. Le site est écrit en anglais et ma lecture est des plus hésitante. Merci beaucoup de m’aider. Je cherche des références comme celles-ci. Mes amis, musiciens boliviens pourtant, mais de style très traditionnel ne connaissent pas ce style de musique et ne me sont d’aucune aide.

    Dear Anne,

    I apologize for my very poor reading French. If I am correct, you are asking me about the recordings by Florilegium? Yes, there are two discs of music:
    Bolivian Baroque, Music from Missions of Chiquitos and Moxos Indians (Channel Classics 22105) and Bolivian Baroque, Music from the Missions and La Plata (Channel Classics 24806). I hope this is what you are asking for?
    All the best,
    Craig
