Take a musical journey across the Andes Mountains and experience the rich cultural tapestry of South America with Yarina: Remembrances of Ecuador.

Performing on a wide variety of traditional instruments and dressed in native outfits, Yarina weaves together an imaginative tapestry of South American musical styles, and their repertoire extends to include jazz, blues, Latin and western classical masterpieces. Yarina sings in three languages, including their native Kichwa, Spanish and English. The world-class musicians and dancers in Yarina perform to standing room only crowds throughout Europe and the Americas, and were named Ambassadors for Indigenous Ecuadorian Performers." by the Department of Culture in Quito, Ecuador. Most recently, Yarina won a NAMMY (Native American Music Award) for "Best World Music."

Yarina is dedicated not only to musical excellence, but also to the preservation and sharing of the beauty, courage and survival of the ancestral traditions and culture of the indigenous peoples of Ecuador.

This hauntingly beautiful and immensely appealing program combines music, stories and dance to transport audiences of all ages to the Andes.
