Archive for Quechua
Check out this little animation of a children’s song from Peru. The language is not Spanish, but Quechua – a language used by the folks of the Incan empire! “Yaw” means – “hey”. Puka is the word for red and a polleracha is the word for a girls skirt called a pollera, so the song is calling out to a girl in a red skirt. The little boy is playing the zampoñas or pan flute, a traditional wind instrument made from bamboo. What fun!
