Feeling a bit camera shy


SUKAY and the Pachamama Carnaval

There’s no need to travel to South America for Carnival – we bring it to you!

For the ultimate pan-Latin experience, Sukay joins the Pachamama Latin Band, San Francisco's best samba troupe Fogo Na Roupa and an optional Flamenco troupe to bring a dynamic collaboration of Latin music and dance featuring the sounds and colors of the Andes, Brazil, Cuba and Spain.
Founded in 1975 by executive director Quentin Howard (pan-pipes, flutes, and lead vocals), Sukay is directed by Bolivian composer Eddy Navia, one of the greatest master exponents of the charango. Eddy has recorded eight solo albums and was a founding member of the famous group Savia Andina who have recorded 30 albums, three of which went gold. Like an orchestra, Sukay draws from a broad palette of diverse sounds: the deep, sharp, airy blasts of the medieval-sounding toyos (pan pipes with graduated tubes up to 5 feet long); the high, vocal inflections of the kena (notched flute), the shimmering ring of the charango (a mandolin-like instrument made from an armadillo shell), and the resonant tones and muted percussive drive of the classical guitar.
