countries in South America, but they play fifteen instruments.

[...] "Rarely have I felt to this degree,
through the entire evening without the tension going down
for a second, what it means to say the word celebration.
No doubt the cheerful presence of the group, where nothing
is affected or pretentious. Colourful ponchos on a white shirt
and black pants.
A program with great variety.
But above all, a life and rhythms that brought the house down
with applause and clapping."
