Savia Andina was one of the first Andean folk groups to attract international attention. Co-founded by Bolivian composer and charango player Eddy Navia, Savia Andina was a four-piece group dedicated to preserving the most obscure musical traditions of the Andean region.
Although Savia Andina recorded 30 albums that were released in Latin America including three that achieved gold status, Navia left the band to join Sukay in 1978. Navia has also recorded several solo albums. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
