Artist Discipline: Music - Touring Artists
Sisai founder Jose Muenala learned to play flutes as a boy, inspired by the elders who continue the rich musical heritage of his people. From his self taught beginnings on Andean mountainsides to performing for over twenty years at hundreds of venues across the U.S., Jose and Sisai have remained dedicated to pursuing a true traditional sound. They have produced four recordings which reflect their dedication to maintaining and furthering native culture.
The performance we heard from Sisai was a wonderful experience for our students and staff. All of us were struck by the extraordinary music. By weaving strong explanations of the origin of the music and the Andes culture, the students were quickly drawn into the presentation. I can genuinely state that the Sisai performance was one of the strongest and most professional student enrichment programs that we have ever had visit our school.
