Andean flute virtouso Nayo Ulloa combines exotic traditional sounds with a lively world-beat sensibility in this new collection of South American classics and exuberant original compositions.

Nayo combines the best of folk and ethnic music from South America with a contemporary world fusion sound. Although his specialty is music from Peru and South America, Nayo's varied repertoire of both traditional and original songs encompasses all of Latin America. He also enjoys performing classical music using the traditional instruments of the Andes.

While the 'kena', or Andean flute, is Nayo's primary instrument, he also delights listeners with the 'sikus' (Andean panpipes), guitar, charango, and voice.

Nayo's opera-trained tenor range embraces everything from traditional Peruvian and Andean music to Latin American romantic standards and Italian art songs.

Nayo has been a dedicated performer of Peruvian and South American music since age 14. He first arrived in the United States in 1981 and toured actively throughout the 1990's. After several years of intense solo guitar training, Nayo returns to the musical scene with new compositions and with a strong desire to continue his journey of sharing the beautiful musical traditions of Peru and South America.

until you've heard Nayo've missed the real deal...
North America may have first been exposed to 'El Condor Pasa' thanks to Simon and Garfunkel, but until you've heard a virtuoso like Nayo Ulloa blow it on the Andean bamboo flutes, you've missed the real deal...

The Record, Stockton, California

Exotic...entertaining...exuberant Kena solos...
Exotic in the first sense of the word, entertaining in every sense...Nayo switches with amazing rapidity from one unusual ethnic instrument to another. With equal virtuosity he goes from the Charango and the Kena to the Sikus...Nayo's exuberant Kena solos [are] in the style of Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw...

Delicate Andean flute brings modern tone to Peruvian classics
Delicate Andean flute brings a modern tone to Peruvian classics in 'Loma Prieta', presenting Nayo Ulloa's first new album in ten years. 'Loma Prieta' features not the usual Andean panpipe set, but a notched Kena flute: this lends it a lively and often rollicking countenance in clear contrast to the usual traditional Andean panpipe sound.
If you think Andean music 'sounds alike', take a listen to Nayo Ulloa: his lively rhythms trill, warble, add shakers and other percussion, and guitar for a multi-faceted embellishment.
Many who reflect on Andean music think the pan flute is the same as the Kena; not so. The Kena's unique sound adds a timbre and trill very different--and just as lovely and authentically South American.


Brilliantly performed!
Nayo Ulloa is considered one of the great Peruvian virtuosos of the Quena, the pre-Colombian recorder-like flute. 'El Condor Pasa' is one of the many Andean folkloric pieces featured on this new CD, as well as more 'Latin' numbers (flavored with strains of samba and flamenco). All in all, a fine mix of standards and original compositions which, while not breaking with convention, are nonetheless brilliantly performed.
