Andean Folk Music - A Lecture Recital

The rich tradition of folk music from the Andean region of South America is largely unfamiliar to audiences in the Southeastern United States.  The vivacious rhythmic patterns, soulful melodies, and interesting instrumentation make this music memorable and enjoyable.  Members of the local ensemble Vientos del Pueblo discuss and perform instrumental arrangments of three traditional Andean pieces.  Commentary is included for each selection, along with a brief introduction to the history of Andean folk music.
