Andean groups
    Land of winds > Perfomers

Those who play Andean music, those who dream, write and compose it. The people who sing it, who shape it, who make it peal out, who whisper it or shout it out. The itinerant artists who travel across countries and continents with their instruments on the back and the art in their hands. Groups and soloists, communities and schools, singers and instrumentalists, anonymous or well-known: all of them are the main characters of this section. Here you will find some of their adventures on the stages and in the streets, their sources of inspiration and their contributions.
