New Inca Son
The richness of Andean folklore comes alive with New Inca Son, "proud bearer of an indispensable cultural legacy." (Keith Lockhart, Boston Pops Conductor). Acclaimed in the U.S. and abroad for over 20 years, the group has performed its ancient melodies and dances on world class stages such as the 1994 FIFA World Cup, 1996 and 2002 Olympic Games, and the White House. In 2019, New Inca Son had the honor of headlining at both of our country's Smithsonian National Museums of the American Indian, NYC and Washington DC locations. In 2015, the band performed at the Kennedy Center for the Arts and the Smithsonian FolkLife Festival, as part of a special tribute to Peru; and at Philadelphia's Mann Center's for an audience of over 4000 enthusiastic kids from inner city schools. New Inca Son is a band with a mission: to preserve its indigenous heritage and to instill, particularly in children and young people, an understanding and appreciation of it.
