For over four decades, the music of Inti-Illimani has intoxicated audiences around the world. Performing on more than thirty wind, string, and percussion instruments, they are a veritable institution, and a cultural icon of their native Chile. As both innovators and originators, their commitment to nueva canción (new song) remains unyielding to this day as a celebration of the traditional folk sounds of Latin culture, while delivering messages of social change. With over forty recordings to their name, Inti-Illimani has appeared on stage with Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracey Chapman, Youssou’n’Dour, Mercedes Sosa, Wynton Marsalis, and many others.
