Synopsis. "Dancing strong, with intense percussion and from the end of the first song goes the lament, of rage, anger and rebellion, in the midst of which cosmogonic exclamations are produced (Oh, Pachacámac) and the versification narrates the activities of the mitayos: barren, carmenan, weave, weed, spin, are in the mines, and in agriculture, without eating, without loving; their women are forced to become intimate with the invaders, generating miscegenation. They no longer own their names, they have been mutated by strangers: Melchior, Marcos, José, Lucas, Roque. The Christ is not their Christ, he is Pachacámac, Lord of the Universe, who is absent and is present when he returns, claiming that all the land that was taken from him is his. Then he makes memories by announcing his return and returns to his homeland, leaving behind the elegiac tone and shining other chords, very jubilant of a people that returns from suffering and death, in search of their lost identity during centuries of vassalage and oppression, exclaiming We are! We will be! I am!".
