Concierto Raices del Andes at Old Town School

Raíces del Ande was founded in 1983 by six Chicago-based Bolivian university students. The group's style, known internationally as Andean music, combines indigenous, Spanish, and African influences. The Andean sound features a correspondingly wide array of instruments -some well known, such as guitar and harp, and others unique to South America, such as the quena (a vertical wooden or cane flute) and the charango (a tiny guitar-like instrument originally made using the shell of an armadillo) both native to Bolivia, and the bombo (a large drum with a hairy cowhide head). The lyrics of Raíces del Ande's songs have roots in folk tradition and address ageless questions of freedom and justice.
