YARINA in Concert

Wednesday, February 1, 2017 -
6:00pm to 8:00pm

Yarina is a band of siblings dedicated to preserving and sharing the ancestral culture of the indigenous people of the Andes. Their music transports audiences to a place wrapped in spellbinding beauty by artfully blending the ancient rhythms of its culture with original compositions that incorporate elements from various western musical styles.

Yarina, which means “remembrance” in the native Kichwa language of the indigenous people of Ecuador, has since its inception committed itself to maintaining musical excellence. Its concerts are hauntingly sensual listening experiences, but also displays of musical versatility, with more than 40 different instruments employed by band members, from the native windpipe and flute to the violin and a wide range of percussive instruments.

Yarina’s musicianship earned the group the title “Best World Music Recording” at the 2005 Native American Music Awards and “Best Folk Music Recording” at the 2005 Indian Summer Music Awards. Both were for its latest and fifth album, Nawi.
