The Original Bambis – Azteka
In Aztec culture music was performed by professional musicians and singers, who resided in the palace of the ruler, a place called the “House of the Cloud Serpent” (Mixcoacalli). While the court musicians performed often hundreds of people took part in formation dances, the line hustles of their day.
The temple and the court musicians used instruments made from wood and jaguar skins for the drums, gold and copper for bells, or marine shells for rattles and trumpets. Unfortunately we don’t have much information of what the melodies actually sounded like. Here however we have a spectacular interpretation from Germany by The Original Bambis. Behold: the exotic and majestic music of the Aztec people!
