Daniel Alomia Robles
Daniel Alomia Robles (3 January 1871 18 June 1942) was a Peruvian composer and ethnomusicologist. He is best known for composing the song El Condor Pasa in 1913 as part of a zarzuela, a musical play that alternates between spoken and sung parts, by the same name. This song was based on Andean folk songs and is possibly the best known Peruvian song because the melody was used by Simon and Garfunkel as their melody for "El Condor Pasa (If I Could)", though the song has different lyrics.
