“El Condor Pasa” by Daniel Alomía Robles

1 min read

Officially recognized as part of the national cultural heritage of Peru, "El Cóndor Pasa" is considered to be a second national anthem. The work was made famous outside of Peruvian/Latin American culture in the 1960’s by the American pop group, Simon and Garfunkel, as the song, "If I Could." Paul Simon heard the song in Paris and was assured that the song was an Andean folk melody. After it was released, the son of Daniel Alomía Robles (1871-1942) successfully sued to have his father’s name recognized as the composer, as Robles had copyrighted the song in 1933 in the United States. As the lawsuit was settled by the parties, Robles’ son went on to write new Spanish lyrics for Simon’s version.

This arrangement for flute, marimba, and guitar more closely resembles the original orchestral version. This performance features Staff Sgts. Sonia Dell’Omo on flute, Jake Harpster on marimba, and Jan Knutson on guitar.
