Oscar Beltran – Yatiri – Bolivian musician


Meet Oscar Beltran, a Bolivian musician who calls himself Yatiri. Yatiri translated from a traditional Inca Quechua language of the Andes means “the healer”. I am not sure if Oscar’s music can heal but it certainly can sooth the soul. He plays Charango, a 10-string guitar like instrument, the Quena (flute) and the Siku (panpipes). From familiar “El C√≥ndor Pasa”, through “lambada” to more traditional south American folk songs. You can find out more about Oscar on his website There is a lot of passion in his music and it seems to reflect in his radiant face.
