¡Cuy!

PERU | Wednesday, 14 July 2010 | Views [540]

A little while ago, I set my thirteen-year-old nephew up with some modest facilities for composing electronic music, in a redux of my sullen childhood.  He came back with a "debut album," so:  for the occasion of his fourteenth birthday (and also to terrorize his younger sister, like any good uncle), I couldn't resist cutting this short little video to his music.  I had just filmed it in the small village of Tipón a few kilometers outside Cusco, Perú - the world's "spiritual center" of cuy, at the particular haven best known for...what you'll see in the video.

(Not for the squeamish, and definitely not for anyone who has guinea pigs as cuddly pets.  Like my niece.)
