Traditional Andean Folk Music at the Tigard Public Library

The trio Beautiful Flute will perform traditional Andean folk music at the Tigard Public Library on Friday, Jan. 15, at 7 p.m. The music of Beautiful Flute will include songs in Spanish and Quechua, the indigenous language of the Incas. The mesmerizing music of the panflutes and Andean flutes evokes images of the mystic lands of their origins.
Alex LLumiquinga, inspired by the popular Andean folk groups of his grandfather’s native Ecuador, has played Andean folk music for the past 15 years. Also inspired by his grandfather’s love of the music of the Andes, Sean Koreski has played various Andean flutes and panflutes for the last 24 years. Bolivian Fernando Lopez acquired his love of music from his father.
This free Spanish and English bilingual musical performance will be held at the Library Community Room and is sponsored by the Friends of the Tigard Public Library. For more information, please call the Library at 503-684-6537 and request the Adult Reference Desk or visit the Library’s web page at: http://www.tigard-or.gov/library/ and click on Adult Events.
