The members of Quichua Mashis are Quichua Indians from northern Ecuador. They play traditional and current music from the Andes Mountains. The music they share has been passed down through the generations from the Grandfathers. Musical education in their homes begins as soon as they can hold an instrument, around age five. Many of the instruments are handmade in traditional ways with native materials; bamboo, sheep hooves, goat skins and armadillo shells. If the instruments are not captivating enough, their sound will surely entrance you.
