Kuyayky celebrates Indigenous cultures at Penn

Andean Music Concert by Kuyayky celebrates the relevance and importance of Indigenous and Andean Heritage

Edda Bonilla and José Luis Hurtado, founders of the Miami-based Kuyayky Foundation, will be recognized for their life trajectory on promoting Andean Heritage around the world. This event will take place during the academic conference “Thinking Andean Studies” at the University of Pennsylvania.
Natives of Jauja, Junín (Central Peruvian Andes), Bonilla and Hurtado have educated generations of musicians, dancers and scholars in different ways: working on music revitalization projects in the Andes, partnering with organizations to support migrant communities in South Florida, starting children’s orchestras in Miami and Jauja, raising awareness on the relevance of Andean heritage in today’s world.

Along with some of the current Kuyayky members, they will be offering a music and dance presentation during Thinking Andean Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

Event is Free and Open to the Public
