icoEnlacesAlejandro Vivanco Guerra, Una etnografía olvidada en los Andes. El valle del Chancay (Perú) en 1963,
Critical edition by Juan Javier Rivera Andía, Madrid: CSIC, 2012. Book series: De acá y de allá. Fuentes etnográficas

In this volume, Juan Javier Rivera presents an ambitious critical edition of the ethnographic work Justo Alejandro Vivanco Guerra conducted in indigenous communities of the Chancay Valley in the central highlands of Peru. Vivanco was born in 1910 in Huamanga (capital of the department of Ayacucho), where he learned Quechua and started playing regional music. After working as a music teacher, he joined in 1962 the Institute of Ethnology and Archaeology at the University of San Marcos. The same year, the Institute organized an expedition to the upper valley of Chancay, the beginning of the project «Studies of changes in Peruvian communities», supported by Cornell University. Among the six Peruvian universities participating in the project, the University of San Marcos was chosen to study the Chancay Valley. Vivanco participated in the group of students, led by Matos Mar, who was in charge of the investigation, but, in his age (he was fifty-two old), there were more differences than similarities with respect to their fellow students. His great musical education and its proximity to José María Arguedas gave their observations and descriptions an ethnographic perspective; some would call a «folk» one, really special among those made by the group. Vivanco’s work has been almost completely unedited (with the exception of some partial editions by Rivera) and this recent publication has a twofold importance: that of exposing these valuable materials and offering an interesting contrast with the works of the «social» anthropology that dominated the discipline in Peru in the sixties and seventies.
