Chayag en Familia

Let young Andrés be your guide as you ride the wind down the Andes to take in the sights, sounds and flavors of many countries. Alex Llumiquinga, wife Ireen, and daughter Korayma weave lyrics in Spanish, Quichua, Quechua and Aymara into sweet harmonies, while daughters Ameli and Kelpi alternate between playing traditional instruments such as charango, zampoña, bombo and cajón, and presenting colorful dances both interpretive and traditional.

They specialize in early and contemporary Southern Appalachian tunes along with Celtic music. In addition, Johnson is a talented Appalachian clogger who is more than qualified to provide a little sole music.
