Rhythmic masters Quichua Mashis - one night only November 6 at BPA

BPA Cultural Outreach Program: Quichua Mashis
Friday, November 6 @ 7:30 p.m.
Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA)

The music of Quichua Mashis resonates with the rhythmic diversity of the Andes. The members have performed in Europe, South America, Japan, Canada, and the United States, and they established Seattle as their home base in 1993. Formed by Quichua Indians from northern Ecuador, this band celebrates their connection to “Pacha Mama” (mother earth) and their spiritual journeys through music. This special public performance is part of BPA’s Cultural Outreach Program.

Since arriving in the Northwest, Quichua Mashis has participated in a wide variety of events demonstrating their versatility including public and private schools, universities and colleges, nightclubs and musical showcases, theaters and concerts, fund-raisers, and corporate affairs. They’ve performed for the Seattle Art Museum Black & White Ball, the Children’s Museum, the Mayor’s Art Walk, the Mayor’s Pike Place Celebration, Nordstrom’s Awards Salute, Portland’s Special Olympics, Seattle Symphony, the Puyallup Fair, Washington Hispanic Festival, and many other music festivals, community fairs, and venues.
