Sol Latino

Grupo Sol Latino play Andean music which originated in the Incan Empire before the European conquest.

 

Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela are among this music’s native countries. Some of the traditional instruments are the charango, a 10-stringed instrument, which looks like a tiny guitar; the siku, in different sizes, made from bamboo shoots; the antara, made from a type of cane; and the quena.

 

We will hear Grupo Sol at La Peña de Sol Latino Restaurant & Bar in Antigua. Check out another review of Sol Latino here.
