Main show: Inti-Illimani

Inti Illimani

Inti-Illimani (Spanish pronunciation: [in.ti.ji.ˈ]; from Quechuan Inti and Aymara Illimani) are an instrumental and vocal Latin American folk music ensemble from Chile. The band was formed in 1967 by a group of university students and it acquired widespread popularity in Chile for their song "Venceremos" (We shall win!). When the 1973 Chilean coup d'état took place, they were on tour in Europe and were unable to return to their country. In Europe their music took on a multifarious character, incorporating elements of European baroque and other traditional music forms to their Latin American rhythms, creating a fusion of modern world music. Their name means 'Sun of the Golden Eagle' in Aymara.
