Oral histories, interviews and contemporary life along the Qhapaq Ñan, the inca road system
Thanks to sound and testimony recordings, we intend to present a diversified and non homogeneous representation of the inca roads system, differing from the predominant state supported patrimonial approach, which tends to isolate the roads from their social and cultural context. The idea is to put the spotlight not on the Qhapaq Ñan per se, but rather on oral histories, social and cultural lives of the people living there and on their relationships to their environment.
These thirty hours of interviews and sounds recording (priests, miners, students, musicians, children, painters or farmers, as well as religious ceremonies, community radio programs, speeches at village markets or pilgrimage sites) were recorded by Sébastien Jallade. Part of this work was used for the documentary film, "Qhapaq Ñan, la voix des Andes".
