Ecuadorian Rhythms / Ponchito de Colores with Quixosis // 24-05-20

Considering its small area and population, Ecuador is remarkably hard to define. It's a land of exaggerated topography; climate, culture, and vegetation warp rapidly as you travel from region to region, and so does the music. In today’s special, we will explore Ecuador’s quirky musical history, styles, and unexpected cultural fusions. It must be said however, that there is something that brings all of these expressions together; there is a sense of resilience, of strength, of joy in the face of sadness. Today, in celebration of 198 years from our battles of independence, we will traverse the bold topography of this territory’s musical expressions; stories and sounds from its past, what it looks like in the present, and some of its possible futures.
