Northeast of present-day Quito, along the path between the fortress of Quitoloma and the Pambamarca volcano there is an energetic place of healing. The inhabitants of this region come to this place to petition the gods of Andean cosmovision for help and protection. Indeed, countless ancient legends are told about the presence of protective elves who, dancing at the ends of the rainbows that would appear around the foothills of the Cayambis Volcano, celebrated life, harvests and abundance.
This work—a musical retelling about the festival of life that is celebrated throughout the Andean uplands—is performed by a ten-member ensemble that consists of the following elements:
Vibraphone / Glockenspiel
Tambourine / Bass Drum / Chajchas
Cowbell / Triangle
Tushpar Percussion Ensemble, Patricio Villamar, director.
Sucre National Theater, Quito, Ecuador.
