I've been working on some more cassettes from Auntie Boko's black box and in particular a
number of recordings made from BBC World Routes. This was a series of 3 programmes containing location recordings in Peru. They needed a little hiss reduction. I found the following information about the programme:

Lucy Duran explores the music of Ayacucho, the remote Andean region which bore the brunt of the Shining Path terrorist attacks throughout the 1980s and 90s.

The programme features a session by Manuelcha Prado, a performance of the classic El Condor Pasa on the unique Peruvian harp, and songs from Puspo, a singer who already has 17 children at the age of 22.

The Duo Ayacucho is Raul Gomez (guitar/vocals) and Freddie Gomez (charango/kena) with Puspo on vocals.

Raul Curo Valenzuela (harp); Paolo Lopez (violin); Anthony Ortiz (scissors)

All music was recorded on location in Peru by James Birtwistle for BBC Radio 3, August & September 2006.

I found the following information about the programme:
