Digital album includes a .pdf file with the contents of the booklet (Photos and Patagonian Stories)
Re-released digitally on Bandcamp in June 2015
'Dedicated to the incredible histories that harboured the lands of the Patagonia. The Cacique Sayhueque, the Patagonian Giant's myth, the admiration of the colonists before an unknown fauna, the contact between the native ones and Magellan's men, curious histories that touch with the magic and the fantasy, full with myths fed by old conquerors, scanners and adventurers. The colourful autochthonous instrumentation with aboriginal songs, sounds of the southern fauna, the European vision of a time, of a place, of numberless histories and legends'
