Inkuyo is a multicultural musical ensemble that performs Andean music arranged by Gonzalo Vargas. Vargas is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and record producer. He founded Inkuyo with Pamela Darington, Jorge Tapia, and Omar Sepulveda in the late 1980s.[1] They published their debut album, Land of the Incas, in 1990. Inkuyo's most recent album is Pachakuti: The Overturning Of Space-Time, released in 2007.

"Wipala", the first track on their debut album, serves as a backdrop to the "Brazil Favela" segment of Ron Fricke's 1992 film Baraka.

Inkuyo's namesake is a particular village in the Andes.[1]
