Nestled in an Andean valley at 6,000 feet, the Bolivian city of Tarija is truly one of South America's great undiscovered gems. You'll find colonial architecture, a near-perfect Mediterranean climate, and vineyards outside town stretching to the horizon. It's also one of the most affordable cities in the Americas.
Since the mid-60's, Bolivian singer Luzmila Carpio has represented the culture, community, and stories of the indigenous people that inhabit the mountains and valleys of the Andes. Her music touches on everything from their struggles and injustices, to celebrating the birds, the sky, and everything that is Mother Earth.
