The music of the Andes and South America is heir to pre-Hispanic musical traditions, which were enriched by the contribution of instruments and repertoires of the peoples who settled the lands of this “New World.” This interaction between vastly different cultures gave rise to the most remarkable music, which was rediscovered in codices from the 16th and 17th centuries and which have seen the addition of pieces from oral and popular tradition that were passed down from one generation to the next. We invite you to a musical evening filled with light and colour, in the company of Constantinople’s musicians and Federico Tarazona, one of the greatest virtuosos of the most symbolic and representative instrument of Andean music, the charango.
