Various Artists
The Pipil Indians of El Salvador

Produced and recorded by David Blair Stiffler.

"The Pipils are descendants of the Aztecs of Mexico and today are the last pure-blooded Indians living in the country of El Salvador. Aside from the Pipils there are few remnant groups of the Lenca, Pokoman, Chorti and Ulva who live throughout the country....In this album some representation of the Pipil culture as well as the latinized traditional, Salvadorean folk melodies, that have their roots in the Indian and Spanish religious ceremonies will be presented..."

"Los Pipil son descendientes de los Aztecas mexicanos y son hoy por hoy los últimos indígenas de sangre pura que viven en El Salvador. Aparte de los Pipil todavía existen unos pocos grupos remanentes de las tribus Lenca, Pokoman, Chorti y Ulva que viven a lo largo del país.... En este álbum se presentan algunas tradiciones de la cultura Pipil, así como melodías folclóricas tradicionales salvadoreñas cuyas raíces se encuentran tanto en ceremonias religiosas indígenas como en las españolas..."
