“Cuando pase el temblor” (Spanish for “When the earthquake ends” or “When the tremor ends”) is a pop (or national rock / South American rock) song by the Argentinian pop/rock band Soda Stereo featured as the second track on the 1985 Nada personal album. After being released in October 1985, “Cuando pase el temblor” became one of Soda Stereo’s better known songs together with “De música ligera”.
“Cuando pase el temblor” is one of Soda Stereo’s few songs to feature elements of Andean music, Autochthonous North Argentinian folk instruments, such as panflutes.

Andean panflute: autochthonous musical instrument from South America: Andes Mountain Range – North West of Argentina

El video fue realizado en Tilcara y en las ruinas del pucará que allí se encuentran, restos de un fuerte precolombino omaguaca ubicado en la región andina del noroeste argentino. Comienza con unas breves escenas de 11 segundos, en los que se muestra una sucesión de dibujos realizados con el estilo de las culturas precolombinas andinas del noroeste argentino (que no suelen ser reproducidas en las transmisiones).

Tilcara es una ciudad de la provincia de Jujuy, en Argentina, en el centro de la Quebrada de Humahuaca.

El Pucará de Tilcara es una fortaleza construida por los tilcaras, una parcialidad de los omaguacas, en un punto estratégico sobre la Quebrada de Humahuaca, en la Provincia de Jujuy, República Argentina.
