Close your eyes and let your imagination transport you to the highlands of the Andes Mountains. Imagine the sound of haunting winds and the chill that pierces your soul. These sensations were captured by the ancient Incans in their music. Today you can experience these enchanting traditional melodies performed by Los Hermanos de los Andes. Using the modern guitar and native instruments including the charango (10-string instrument made from an armadillo back), quena (notched bamboo flute), wank’ara (goat skin bass drum), and many others, Los Hermanos de los Andes entice listeners to soar with the condor to the highest summits of the Andes.
Los Hermanos de Los Andes is an Andean folk music ensemble whose purpose is to preserve and share their rich and unique musical heritage. As a group, Los Hermanos de Los Andes believe culture plays an important role in their lives. Because they also believe its beautiful power can cause great and positive impact in people’s lives, they strive to educate by sharing their heritage and bringing people of all races together.
