Viva Quetzal is a high-energy, multi-cultural musical group made up of members from North and South America that performs music of the Americas as it truly is today: an eclectic mixture of traditional, folkloric and pop themes performed on a fascinating array of ancient and modern instruments. Viva Quetzal emphasizes the contributions of the four major cultural influences that have shaped modern Latin American music; the indigenous, the West African, the Iberian, and the United States. Traditional rhythms and melodic forms from these diverse cultures fused over the centuries, creating that which is today’s South American popular music. Viva Quetzal uses that music as a base with witch to blend contemporary North American Jazz and Rock with the music of Latin America.
