This show was 12th in the global folk chart, 12th in the global dub chart, 14th in the global latin chart and 27th in the global world chart.
This month’s show is strung together by the music of Cayambe. 45 minutes north of Quito, Cayambe is a city at zero degrees latitude, named after the snow glacier-capped, dormant volcano that it is named after. Cayambe sits on the real equator, not far from the false idol that most tourists visit. The musical traditions of Cayambe are kept alive by the Octavas, which are a series of parties that last for eight weeks that revolve heavily around music. Musicoteca Ecuador has prepared an exclusive mix of extremely rare records that showcase the musical styles of the ocatavas. Musicoteca Ecuador is one of the most complete resources for listening to ecuadorian music online. Run by one of the most prolific diggers in the country, it is an honour for Quixosis to have them as a guest.
