ANDANZAS, Spanish for "wanderings," describes this group's repertory - a musical wandering through Latin America that explores the over 500 year old legacy of integrating Indigenous, Spanish, and African musical influences. The members of ANDANZAS further that legacy by respectfully, skillfully, and enthusiastically adding their unique backgrounds - folk, jazz, and classical - to the inter-cultural diversity, but drawing special inspiration from the roots - Indigenous Music, primarily Andean. From ancient dance rhythms to contemporary ballads, from virtuoso instrumental pieces to hauntingly beautiful love songs, the arrangements and original compositions of ANDANZAS offer a uniquely subtle, intimate, infectious, and elegant addition to the Latin legacy of eclectic musical languages.
