Interesting one, this. Luis Perez was one of the first people to undertake detailed research on the pre-colonial musical traditions of his native Mexico. In the early 80s, after almost a decade of travelling the country and recording the folk musics of the Maya, Nahuatl, Mazateco, Yoemem, Comcaac, Raramuri, Wixarika and other ethnic groups, the Mexican government sponsored Perez to make an LP that fused some of these sounds with his own brand of psychedelic electronica. The resulting LP, Ipan In Xiktli Metzli (Nahuatl for In The Navel Of The Moon), began a resurgence in interest in native Mexican music that continues to this day. Heard now, the likes of ‘Ketzalkoatl Yauh Miktlan’ could have been an influence on Animal Collective’s Feels. This reissue from Mr. Bongo includes the original listening instructions.
