The Latin Music Concert seeks to showcase different music rhythms from Latin America, highlighting the talents of local Latino and non-Latino artists. From classical music to Latin jazz, these concerts will provide a taste of the variety of cultures from all corners of Latin America.
A program highlighting the music on the Andean region of South America.
Andean music is a diverse group of different styles that has its roots in melodies from the areas once inhabited by the Incas and other peoples, and later influenced by Spanish music elements. This style incorporates a variety of traditional wind instruments such as the zampona (pan flute), and quena (notched-end flutes), both made from aquatic reeds from the Titikaka lake as well as from other lakes in the region. String istruments are also part of the ensemble. These include the acoustic guitar and the charango (a small 12-string instrument resembling a small guitar). Andean music also makes use of percussion instruments such as the bombo and other forms of drums.

About Free Range Brewing Co.
Our adventures in beer making are as varied and dynamic as the seasons and environment around us; from big city foraging to quiet farmland harvests. We prefer to let the ingredients dictate the process, whether in a brettanomyces fermented blackberry wild ale, juicy hop-bombing IPA or a sourdough-bread fermented farmhouse ale. So let your taste buds roam!
