Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos

@ La Sala Rossa, 4848 boul. St-Laurent, Montréal
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the ECOEIN – Ensamble de Cámara de la Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos to Canada for the first time, where they will present three performances and one workshop as part of events co-presented by NO HAY BANDA, the Festival International Présence Autochtone, Arts in the Margins, Casa Del Popolo presents, Innovations en concert, Centre des musiciens du monde, and OK LÀ.
On August 15 at La Sala Rossa, the ECOEIN will present a program of contemporary music written specially for the ensemble by Daniel Leguizamón, Jorge Monroy, Graciela Paraskevaídis, Alejandro Cardona and Christian Wolff.
The ECOEIN is a unique ensemble from Bolivia that brings ancient pre-Colombian roots of the Andes into the present times. The group performs on traditional musical instruments from the Quechua and Aymara peoples, which, while also bearing profound cultural significance, constitute a vast source for the exploration of sound. The instruments are incorporated into the music as originally built, with their traditional playing techniques, non-tempered tuning, and characteristic performer behaviour. Traditional music constitutes the basis of its techniques and philosophy, whereas new music serves as its medium of expression and represents the identity of current times.
The other activities of the week include:
August 12: ECOEIN @ Fête de L’Amitié nuestroamericana
August 16: ECOEIN – Initiation au Siku Bolivien @ Centres des musiciens du monde
August 18: ECOEIN @ OK LÁ

NO HAY BANDA recognizes that the land on which we operate is the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk). Tiohtiá:ke / Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples.
We would like to thank the the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the SOCAN Foundation for their support.
