Andean Music: workshops, Courses and individual lessons on Andean Popular Folklore
The different historical circumstances the Andean regions have gone through, along with the multi-ethnicity, complex multi-cultural context and the evermore globalized and industrialized world´s present phenomena, produced a rich and varied contemporaneous Andean music. Therefore, we see the coexistence of musical elements that range from classic and pop, to jazz and new age, along with the Andean style.
Our courses and seminars will develop around these topics, turning your visit into an interesting, fun and unforgettable live experience. We´ll interpret the most beautiful songs from the popular repertory: from Ecuador, passing by Peru and Bolivia, to get to Chile and Argentina, styles such as san juanitos, llameradas, huaynos, fusion and much more.
Right from the first lesson, you will start interpreting your favorite song!
