June 29 (Friday): Andean Flute Music in Greenport at 7pm

Flutist Walter Purizaca will be at the Floyd Memorial Library, 539 First Street in Greenport at 7 pm on Friday June 29.

The Floyd Memorial Library is proud to present an evening of haunting and beautiful music performed by an extraordinary musician who explains his passion below:

“You have probably seen us. Dark skin, long black hair, nostalgic stare and deep expression. We’re usually everywhere in the world, accompanied by our inseparable musical instruments: the winds; Quenas, Sikus or Zampo┼łas, Rondadores, the Antaras, pinkillos - made of cane, like bamboo: the percussion; Wankaras, Bombos, Rain Sticks, Chajchas – made of llama or sheep hooves, seeds and wool and the newer ones like charangos, mandolins, harps and guitars. We come originally from the eternal Andean region, descendants of the ancient Aymara civilization and the Inca empire.

The singularity of our music is

First: the message and kind of music that we play.
Second: the instruments on which we play it
Third: the manner in which we do it.

Walter Purizaca
