Everybody recognizes the unique sounds of Andean music, performed by poncho-clad ensembles with panpipes, the bamboo flute and the charango but it may not be what we think it is. Music lovers, ethnomusicologists, and students of any ethnicity will gain from "Andean Music as World Music" presented by Dr. Fernando Rios, Assistant Professor in Ethnomusicology at University of Maryland. His research, based on fieldwork conducted in Bolivia, Argentina and France, (yes, France!) revels in music styles that draw inspiration from Andean rural indigenous and mestizo traditions and forms of "Andean" music that became prominent Bolivian national identity emblems. His recent scholarship includes articles in Ethnomusicology, Latin American Music Review and Ethnomusicology Forum.
