    The Andes stretched from the Andes of Venezuela southward down the Andes in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru & Bolivia to northern Argentina and Chile
    Since the pre-Hispanic era, the Andes has been characterized by its traditional music and colorful dances.The Andes is especially known for its folklore and traditions with Quechua (4000 year B.C.E.) and Spanish (since "La Conquista") influences.
