Colores Andinos

Andean Colors is an original musical exploration into Latin-Andean fusion. Its members come originally from Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Peru and Canada. Since they came together as a group in Ottawa in 1997, they have been touring many places in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. In each performance, Andean Colors has captivated audiences because of its energy, talent and art, playing more than 20 wind, string and percussion instruments from modern and traditional Latin American heritage. Each member of Andean Colors specializes in different in-struments and has extensive experience performing with other international Latin-American groups in Europe and in the Americas. Their repertoire includes original and arranged traditional songs, blending Native-Andean rhythms and contemporary influences such as salsa, cumbia, bossa-nova and jazz. But what makes Andean Colors a unique group is its sound produced by the encounter of different multicultural roots, experiences and musical backgrounds that could only truly happen in Canada.
