De Menor A Mayor Latin American Folk Music Ensemble Presented by Sombrilla Refugee Support Society

For some time, De Menor A Mayor (from minor to major) has been dedicated to exploring the various styles of the Latin American folk music. The group has revived a music that is rich, complex and fun to play as well as to listen. Five musicians of Latin American origins come together and showcase a repertoire from various countries, including Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Colombia.

Within these styles the instrumentation varies and a spectra of sounds are explored through the winds of the zampoñas and quenas, strings from the charango, tiple,  venezuelan cuatro, and the sweet sound of the harp. The mix is complete with the vocals of our strong female singer Marianela, who will be
celebrating 30 years of popular singing. Joining us this evening are Our Lady of Guadalupe church choir and Inca Peruvian Folk Dance group. Proceeds raised will support Sombrilla’s international development projects in Peru and Guatemala.

The 6th Edmonton Scouts will host a bake sale at the intermission and there will be coffee (from our Peru Project area) for sale. Proceeds will support
Sombrilla’s projects in Peru and Guatemala
