The White Mountain School Presents:
Inkas Wasi:  Music and Dance of the Andes 

A free music performance featuring traditional music and dance from the Andes will take place on Friday, March 28th at 7:00pm at The White Mountain School.

Inkas Wasi is led by educator and master musician Sergio Espinoza.  A classically trained violinist, Sergio studied at the National Conservatory of Music in Lima, Perú. Sergio plays many styles of Peruvian flutes, including sikus, and quenas. Sergio’s passion for the traditional music of the Andean people was handed down by his parents who, along with other family members, performed in the Peruvian Music and Dance troupe Pacha. Sergio performed with Pacha for 14 years as they toured Perú, Colombia, Spain, France and Germany.

After coming to the United States in 1991, Sergio toured in the U.S. and Europe for over 10 years with various groups, performing concerts in a wide variety of settings and presenting workshops and lectures. In 2003, Sergio formed InkasWasi Perú, bringing together musicians from several countries of South America to perform the music of the indigenous people of the Andes Mountains.  This award winning traditional group brings spirit, joy and remarkable technical skills to every performance.

The performance will take place at 7pm in the Great Hall of The White Mountain School, 371 West Farm Rd, Bethlehem. The performance is free and open to the public; however, donations will be gratefully accepted and used to support future Cultural Events at The White Mountain School. 

The performance is the culminating event of a five-day regional residency coordinated by the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire as part of a collaboration with The White Mountain School. The residency, funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts through the NEA Regional Touring Program, will bring Inkas Wasi to schools and community sites throughout the North Country for assemblies, workshops and additional performances.
