2ND FRIDAY @ MONDO Music Concert Event with INKHAY in Concert
The popular bi-monthly 2ND FRIDAY @ MONDO music series continues with a special music concert performance by the INKHAY quartet in concert at the 3rd floor MONDO Brownstone Theater, located at 426 Springfield Avenue in downtown Summit, NJ. Enjoy the rich music traditions of the South American Andes region with acclaimed Andean music artist Pepe Santana and his special guest music artists at this wonderfully intimate venue.
INKHAY is a Quechua verb that means "to tend the fire". The members of the group have chosen this name to symbolize their commitment to keep alive, expose and spread the beautiful music of the Andes mountains of Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador.
The musicians play over two dozen musical instruments. Among the wind instruments, they play a variety of pan-pipes known to the natives as "sikus", "antaras" or "zampoñas". They also play end-notched vertical flutes called kenas, transverse flutes, whistles and ocarinas as well as an array of percussion instruments. All these instruments have their roots in pre-Hispanic civilization.
INKHAY's music, primarily, represents elements of South American indigenous culture when they perform wind and percussion music. They also include European musical elements when they play stringed instruments like the guitar, mandolin and the well known "charango" (a guitar like instrument fashioned of an armadillo shell). Over the past three centuries, harp music, together with other stringed instruments has become an integral part of the "mestizo" traditional music of the Andes. The task of group INKHAY is to interpret the different styles of playing Andean music maintaining the styles of the native communities.
INKHAY originated in New York City in 1984. Their performances at music festivals, museums, schools and concert halls have created a new source of reference for folk music lovers.
The members of INKHAY, under the direction of Pepe Santana, a native from Ecuador, are: César Vele, Iván Vele and Rothman Terán all from Ecuador. In the past, each member has been involved with various folk groups, both, here in the United States and in South America.
INKHAY's commitment is to keep alive the fire of their vibrant Andean Traditions.
Event proceeds benefits programming efforts at TEATRO Si, a 501(c)3 not for profit organization.
