The sound of Huayucaltia (pronounced why-yoo-cal-tee-ah) is a fusion of the Andean, Afro-American, Jazz, Classical and Rock influences each group member brings to the band. Their name inspired by the Nahuatl word huayolcayotl, (which means kinship; unity and brotherhood) is what best defines their endeavor: to bring together diverse cultural experiences in order to create new musical expressions.
Playing both indigenous and contemporary instruments, their compositions take the listener on a timeless journey of sounds and rhythms, through the jungles and rivers of the Amazon, and high into the Andes.
The members of Huayucaltia hail from five different countries: Julio Ledezma from Argentina, Hernan Pinilla from Colombia, Antonio Ezkauriatza rom Mexico, Ciro Hurtado from Peru, and Cindy Harding from the United States.
This event is presented as a part of Natiional Hispanic Heritage Month.
