Mochi Parra
Mochi Parra is a Chilean singer and multi-instrumentalist. In 1985, she won Chile's Luis Cruz Martinez national medal of music for best young concert cellist. Currently, her work is based on the folkloric music of the Peruvian and Chilean coast, and is composed of a collection of exquisite works that are representative of the voices and the struggles faced by indigenous and native people throughout Central and South America. Directed by Master (Maestro) Carlos Hayre, her repertoire is composed of rhythms such as: festejo, lando, marinera, limeña, samacueca, tondero and valses and incorporate the guitar, cajon, quijada, cajita, and voice. In addition to the cello, Mochi also plays cajon, cuatro venezolano, and charango.

The quality and comforting voice of Mochi Parra, invites us to travel through a beautiful gamut of songs from the Peruvian Coast, from the ancient repertoire and pioneer music ensemble, "Ricardo Palma", to the present with works from Andres Soto and poet Cesar Calvo, L.H. Salamayer, Chabuca Granda and Alicia Maguina.

Mochi has conducted workshops at Stanford University, San Francisco State University, and the American Museum of Natural History. She has also performed in numerous venues, including La Peña de Berkeley (California), La Peña del Sur in San Francisco, Stanford University, San Francisco State University, New York University, The Ethnic Dance Festival, the American Institute of Guitar, El Taller Latino Americano, Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing, Works In Progress at New York University and on the weekly television show Mi tierra, mi corazon, y su música, at Telemundo studios.
