Summer Culture Connection programs announced
|Many different kinds of groups perform at the summer Culture Connection series that is held in the Peace Gardens by the CEU Prehistoric Museum.|
Price City Culture Connection begins its official summer season with the electrifying sounds of Los Hermanos de los Andes this Saturday at 7:30 in the Peace Gardens.
Pan pipes, bamboo flutes, an armadillo backed stringed instrument called a Charango, a goat skin bass drum, and modern guitar all blended magnificently to entice listeners to soar with the condor to the highest summits of the Andes. This is the music of Los Hermanos de los Andes.
Local teacher, musician and Culture Connection committee member, Elias Perez plays with the group and has been instrumental in arranging for their performance.
In 1989 a group of engineering students at BYU discovered that they shared more than the common interest of playing with numbers and started meeting informally to play and share Andean music and culture. After receiving frequent requests to play at talent shows, and other public appearances, it was decided to organize a formal group and call themselves Los Hermanos de los Andes.
