The musicians of Andes Manta will share the music of their homeland in South America with the Lakeside Chautauqua audience this week.
Andes Manta performs the vibrant music of the Ecuadorian Andes on more than 35 traditional instruments.
The group is known for its virtuosity and extraordinary performances. From the lyrical sound of the quena, or Andean Flute, to the haunting tones of the six-foot-long pan-pipes, Andes Manta’s music is an experience that never fails to bring audiences to their feet.
Andean music has existed for more than 1,000 years, and the tradition of this type of music remains and continues to be played from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego.
This rare form of music is one of the few remaining authentic, prehistoric culture forms in South America. Many South American natives believe “it is the music that preserves the heart and soul of the ancient ones.”
The four Lopez brothers, Fernando, Luis, Bolivar and Jorge, bring this unique style of music together as a way to celebrate their heritage and preserve the culture they grew up in. Their sound is a celebration of daily life.
The Lopez brothers, natives of the Ecuadorian Andes, learned their traditional folk music as it has been learned for thousands of years, being passed from father to son, and brother to brother for generations.
They believe their music can bring an opportunity for cultural understanding between people of their homeland in South America and people in modern North America.
The group has performed at Carnegie Hall, the National Cathedral and Lincoln Center, as well as on the Discovery Channel. They have also entertained schools and universities throughout North America.
