Journey through Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador on a musical and cultural exploration guided by a bilingual speaker and accompanied by musicians born and raised in Otavalo, Ecuador. Sisai proudly conveys its unique, indigenous culture through song, legend, language, and glimpses into Andean life. This quartet invites students to participate by clapping out the rhythm of a sanjuanito, joining in a dance to celebrate the harvest, and trying traditional Andean percussion and wind instruments.
Ancient flutes still echo through the Andes Mountains, and the heartfelt and joyful sounds easily resonate with children today. They spark imagination and transcend cultural borders. Performance can be tailored to specific age groups and areas of study. Bilingual, English, or Spanish presentations may be requested.
For all ages
- Minimum performance space of 8' (deep) x 15' (wide)
- Access to one 110V electrical outlet
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.
