Ágrip: Starting from the Jemaa el-Fna marketplace in Marrakesh and from the Teatro Mazzi in Lima, the lecture will trace the global circuits of intangible heritage, like storytelling, glass-eating, and traditional music, focusing in particular on the travels of “El Condor Pasa”: from the Andes mountains to global metropoles; from panpipes to piano and from symphony orchestras to the disco; from indigenous to popular music; and from world music back to national heritage. Some of the protagonists in the lecture are: Juan Goytisolo, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Daniel Alomía Robles, Los Incas, the Cerro de Pasco Copper Company, the Victor Talking Machine Corporation, the Falangist Socialist Party of Bolivia, Chuck Berry, and UNESCO. Ultimately, the lecture queries the relationship between protection and dispossession.
