Kantu Inka to Perform Music of the Andes

In Carson City, Saturday, May 21st

 The Carson City Symphony Association will present a free concert featuring Music of the Andes on Saturday, May 21, at 2:30 p.m., at Empire Elementary School, 1260 Monte Rosa Drive in Carson City. The concert features Kantu Inka – Carlos and Julie Ocampa – who have been presenting Peruvian Andean music in the U.S. since 2003.

Kantu Inka’s performance will include an introduction to Andean wind, string, and percussion instruments, music, dance, geography, and clothing. They will be joined by about a dozen students of all ages playing zampoñas (Peruvian panpipes) and string instruments for a special rendition of “El Condor Pasa,” a well-known piece written in 1913 by Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles. String parts were arranged for this project by Carson City Symphony musician, Bill Melendres.

This performance is the culmination of four workshops at which Kantu Inka shared their passion for Andean music with members of Carson City Symphony’s Youth Strings and Not Quite Ready for Carnegie Hall adult string ensemble. Each participant learned to play and care for a 17-pipe bamboo zampoña, hand-made in Peru.

This free performance is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, call the Symphony at 775-883-4154.
