This chapter discusses Andean intellectual life in twentieth-century Ayacucho, when local discussions about traditional huayno style set the terms in which future generations would interpret it. These discussions took place in events organized by Centro Cultural Ayacuchano, a society of enlightened aristocracy that was tied obliquely to Peru’s contemporaneous indigenista movement. The chapter also discusses the foundations of huamanguinismo, including the sounds, images, and ideas that separated true huamanguinos from those who were not.

Keywords:   intellectual life, huayno, centro cultural ayacuchano, enlightened aristocracy, indigenista, huamanguinismo, huamanguinos
