MAHOPAC, N.Y. - Mahopac Public Library’s 12th annual BAMM Concert series kicks off Sunday, Feb. 10, 2 p.m., with a performance by Andinay, a group of musicians with roots in Ecuador, Bolivia, and Peru. Their music fuses contemporary melodies with traditional Andean instruments and rhythms. Bamboo pan pipes, quena flutes, charango, ronroco, and guitar blend this music into a unique sonic experience.
Andinay’s music evokes the timeless wonder of the Andean region. While their music is completely original and fresh, Andinay radiates a strikingly familiar airiness and melancholy. Maybe it’s because most of the instruments they play have been around for thousands of years or maybe it’s their global message of unity and recurrent themes of freedom that resonates within us.
Andinay’s concert, performed in Spanish and English, is part of the 2019 BAMM Concert Series which is funded by Tompkins Mahopac Bank, PCSB Bank, and the Sylvia B. Henschel Fund, a bequest to Mahopac Public Library. Public and local business support enables the Library to present the BAMM concerts with no admission charge. Instead, concert attendees are invited to participate in the BAMM Lends a Hand Project by bringing non-perishable food items to donate to a local food pantry to help our community members in need.
Registration is recommended for this family-friendly concert. Register online at www.mahopaclibrary.org, or call 845-628-2009, ext. 100.
