Luminary Chilean musicians Inti-Illimani celebrate 45 years of music and culture in a rare Canadian engagement on April 24, 2012 at 8pm at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts. Performing on more than 30 instruments, the eight-member ensemble will present an evening of Latin folk and world music that spans the entirety of their illustrious career.

For more than 45 years, celebrated musicians Inti-Illimani have acted as musical and cultural ambassadors for the Chilean people and Latin America as a whole. As they have travelled the globe, sharing their music, the open-minded musicians have allowed their rich expression to be influenced by local traditions. The result is a fresh, distinct, and entirely captivating sound whose musical roots remain true to generations of tradition.

“An Inti-Illimani concert is a wild ride through Latin music, a whirlwind of Andean and Caribbean inspired tunes... all the players displayed relentless virtuosity in a concert that was pure exhilaration to the very end.”
