Please note that there is another version of this album, the one I heard was borrowed from the Belgian Mediatheque, that the one presented here. I strongly suggest you to hunt down the version presented on this site. I can't tell you the emotions that run through me as I hear Gato Alquinta intonate the opening words of this majestic call for peace and unity, this song gets me right the way through to the passionate conclusion To me it is breath-taking Musically the Todos Juntos track is a pleasing, albeit pretty basic fusion of quena, ocarina and charango Andean flutes and mandolin respectively , fiery acidic lead guitar and Latin percussion, but lyrically, melodically, spirtually, this track is an unforgetable anthem.
The song itself is the greatest highlight of an engaging albeit simplistic album. The opening song is a hymnal chant of peace, Mira Ninita is a delicate sweet tune that takes its out sweet time to evolve beyond its languid, marimba-dominated opening into a joyous celebration.
The same description can be applied to Indio Hermano which if anything, is even more beautiful, starting off in pure traditonal Andean vein and what a great melody it boasts before evolving into something more.
The lilting Ayer Cache is another one, although it is "Spanish-influenced where Indio Hermano was so obviously the music of South America's true natives.
Another thing that defines this album are the extravagant percussion interludes bombo, bongo, you name it, they play it! Los Caminos Que Se Abren is probably the most interesting track from a progressive point of view probably the best realisation of the sort of improvisational psychedelic music that the band played on its debut The urgent call that is La Quebra Del Aji contains many of the same ingredients but is better-paced, while Cuerro Y Piel contains the best percussive work of all not sure how much of it is just drummer Gabriel Parra!
There are a few different versions of this album which I believe was initially released as La Ventana and retitled when Todos Juntos became a hit and unfortunately mine omits Ciclo Vital I must repeat my earlier statement that this album is not about progressive sophistication This album has immense passion, an almost fiery hope and in retrospect, a sense of historical importance that goes way beyond music that makes it an esssential purchase in my opinion.
The band is playing a joyful ethnic music which will later on be combined with pleasant prog sounds. Nevertheless, the title track is rather pleasant. Percussion work is great, but this characteristic was already noticeable on their debut album. Spanish lyrics are in my case an integrated fact in my life but I don't think that it shouldn't halt you in the discovery of this band.
But of course, you would need to be ready for such a South American trip. This band fully belong to the prog folk genre a lot more than several other bands included in this category on PA.

They quickly realized that an English-sounding name was not appropriate for a folk band, so they changed it to Jaivas HIGH-BASS , a "Chileanized" pronunciation of "high bass" which ignores the fact that bass the musical instrument rhymes with base and lace in English, as opposed to the word bass the fish which rhymes with cass and lass , which is how the syllable vas is pronounced in the band's name.
The spelling of Jaivas is a misspelling of the word jaibas , which means crabs in Spanish. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.
