Sometimes in life you take a wrong turn and get lost and sometimes you find a treasure. Last night Sharon and I were rushing to the free Cuenca Symphony Performance at the Teatro Sucre y Luis Cordero. Even though we have lived here over a year we found ourselves in the Teatro Cultura on Luis Cordero. I was shocked when the normally free concert was $10 apiece. But, shock turned to joy when we found ourselves being entertained by Altiplano, an outstanding Chilean band. Both Sharon and I lost count at 30 instruments but each of the 5 players played at least 4 different instruments and the lead entertainer played at least 10 different instruments. A wonderful evening of beautiful Andean music.
Of course live music always sounds better but the video below is a good sampling of the great music that evening.
