13 May The Imbayakunas Bringing Andean Sounds to Mariposa
Sharing the rich Andean sounds of Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia, The Imbayakunas infuse traditional music with Latin and European influences, playing ancestral instruments ranging from rondador and other pan flutes, to charango and ronrocco (similar to a lute), and cajas (type of drum).
Their distinctive melodies speak to the heart and soul.
Their rhythms range from the pensive, incorporating sounds of the natural world, to the upbeat and the very danceable.
Their large body of work, recorded in Spanish and Quechua (indigenous language), includes 17 albums that showcase a wide repertoire spanning traditional and modern music.
