Inti Illimani
Inti Illimani
Legendary Chilean ensemble Inti Illimani returns to the Cedar on Thursday, October 19th, as part of its worldwide 50th anniversary tour. This tour also marks the 100th anniversary of the birthday of Chilean icon Violeta Parra. Current arrangements of the songstress' emblematic pieces will be included in the concert, along with Inti Illimani's repertoire of recent and historic song material. This retrospective musical journey will be complemented by guest artists Los Llaneros, who joined Inti Illimani at the Cedar in 2015. Los Llaneros is celebrating its own 40th anniversary with concerts in North and South America, featuring a mix of traditional and contemporary music from Colombia and Venezuela, in particular the music of the "Llanos" or savannas that unite those two sister nations. Also featured will be original compositions by Los Llaneros that have been arranged by Inti Illimani for this special, multi-anniversary concert.
Los Llaneros
Our ensemble Los Llaneros (yah-NEH-ros) brings to the stage the often energetic and sometimes haunting melodies of the Colombian/Venezuelan Llanos or plains that surround the vast basin of the Orinoco River in South America. The Llanos (YAH-nos) is a geographically and culturally unique and little known area of Latin America, and its music evolved from the contact between nomadic Indians and Jesuit settlers starting about five hundred years ago.

Due to the distinctly characteristic syncopations and difficult harp and cuatro techniques, Llanero music is rarely performed in its authentic style outside of the region, and hence it remains one of Latin America’s best kept secrets.

The ensemble was founded in 1978 in Latin America. One of its founding members, Karin Stein (Colombian), still serves as the ensemble's main vocalist and ensemble leader. Other members (see below) include Edgar East (Panamanian), and harpists René Devia (Colombian) and Daniel Rojas (Colombian), who perform with the ensemble on an alternating basis.
