About the Artist
Colores Andinos is an original musical exploration into Latin-Andean fusion. Its members come originally from Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Peru and Canada. In each performance, Colores Andinos 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. But what makes Colores Andinos 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.
