Caminos del Inka-Travel the Inca Trail Through Music This Coming January

A lot of you know I love music from South America. But the music I have listened to from this vast continent has been primarily the music of its African population; a music which is dynamic, diverse and documents the lives and concerns of the African Diaspora. Recently I learned that one of my former teachers, Mr. Diego Luzuriaga, who is from Ecuador, is also a renowned composer who celebrates in his music the glory and beauty and struggles of South America.

I will have the grand opportunity as you can to hear some of his compositions. On January 14, 2011, the Philadelphia Orchestra will play his music as well as other South American composers as part of a series called Caminos del Inka-The Inca Trail. This concert will be conducted by the Peruvian-born conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, who is the brainchild behind this incredible event. The concert not only showcases the work covering three centuries of South American composers, including Mr. Luzuriaga, but it is also a multimedia event which includes stunning photography to complement the music.

Be sure to expect to hear more from me about this not to missed, upcoming concert.
