Kupferberg Presents: Inti-Illimani- Celebrating 50 Years of Music, Education & Activism
October 29, at 3:00 pm$25 - $45
Inti-Illimani has transcended our idea of the musical ensemble and has become a cultural location, a liturgy expressing the essence of the Latin-American ethno-musical experience. For 50 years Inti-Illimani has performed world-wide to hundreds of thousands of fans, collaborated with folk legends, earned awards and honors for their activism and masterful musicianship, and produced one of the richest discographies in Latin-American recording history. Inti-Illimani’s premier album, Nueva Canción, or “new song,” spoke to their role in dreaming a new vision for Chile during the volatile socio-political landscape of South America during the 1960’s and 70’s. They have recorded 36 studio albums, and their newest release is dedicated to the legendary Violeta Parra. Inti-Illimani has toured in dozens of countries at prestigious concert halls, festivals, and benefit concerts.
