Originally, the turtles were terrestrial, 100 million years after its appearance, some evolved to live in the rivers and 50 million later evolved to live in the sea. The turtle in the water is fast and ashore is slow with its shell feel safe is shy and cheerful, arouses the interest of the beholder, some live for many years and become giants and strong as rock, others wear colors to give fantasy nature.

Cusco was a German cross-cultural new-age music band named after the Peruvian city of Cusco, which was once the capital of the Inca Empire. The band's music contains influences from music around the world, with an emphasis on South American flute sounds and melodies. Cusco's melodic and energetic music is a fusion of modern and ethnic styles with influences from classical music and rock music sensibilities. The band was led by founders Michael Holm (Lothar Bernhard Walter; 1943–) and Kristian Schultze (1945–2011). Michael Holm, already a successful vocal artist, sought to make a musical tribute to ancient cultures. He and Kristian Schultze, formerly a member of the jazz band Passport, shared musical and historical interests. In 1979, they formed Cusco, and released their first album in 1980. Their albums consistently reached high on the instrumental/new age music sales charts. They were nominated for a Grammy award three times. Cusco's music is frequently used as pre-show background music in Epcot prior to IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and has been used as bumper music for the popular American syndicated radio program Coast to Coast AM, as well as several television advertisements, including a Bud Ice beer commercial. Additionally, Cusco composed and performed symphonic new age music for the German television special Sielmann.
