Andes Manta will present free concert in October

9/8/2009 —

At noon on Monday, Oct. 19, the musicians of Andes Manta will present a concert in the auditorium of the Penn State Beaver Student Union Building. The program is free and open to the public.

The four Lopez brothers comprise Andes Manta and perform their vibrant music from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego. Natives of the Ecuadorian Andes, the brothers learned their traditional folk music as it has been learned for thousands of years, passed from father to son, brother to brother. Playing more than 35 traditional instruments, Andes Manta provides a rare opportunity for cultural understanding between the peoples of their homeland and North America.
