About the event
The high mountains the Andes are sometimes called the backbone of South America. We might then think of the music from those Andes as the bonemarrow: it carries the soul of the continent. Where Spanish influences have blended with indigenous resources, and now form the identity of Andino culture.
Bolivian-Dutch singer Charo Durán, together with Chilean guitarist and singer Alvaro Pinto Lyon, performs the soul of the Andes in their new programme “Alma Andina”. In old and new folklore music, interwoven by Storytelling and Spoken Word, they let the voice of the soul of the Andes be heard, along the turbulent history of oppression and a contemporary renaissance of indigenous wisdom and pride. Sung and narrated in Spanish, Quechua ánd Dutch.
Let yourself be carried along the rich musical culture of the Andes in this musical portrait of the soul of the continent: Alma Andina.
Vocals, Dutch lyrics and words, percussion: Charo Durán
