Inca Son - May 2nd 8pm ($22)
since its earliest beginnings in the streets of Harvard Square (Cambridge,
Massachusetts), has been a band with a mission: to preserve and instill
appreciation for their cultural legacy through the international
language of music and dance. Dressed as either their Inca forebears,
with feathers and gold earrings, or in the resplendent wool ponchos
still worn in the Andes Mountains, Inca Son is, in the words of Boston
Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, “the indispensable cultural ambassadors
of this nearly lost South American folk tradition. Their music is of the
highest caliber.” They are one of the few bearers of the Inca musical
legacy. With equally vibrant music, characterized by the distinctive
sounds of the haunting pan-flutes or the lively charango (Andean
ten-stringed guitar), Inca Son crosses barriers of language, culture,
race, and age. It is a band with a truly universal appeal. Inca Son is
now recognized as one of the world’s best world Traditional Music
groups. Tickets are available at
Brown Paper Tickets.
