Indigenous singer/guitarist/percussionist Maryta de Humahuaca from Jujuy, Argentina in her New York debut. The concert begins with a ceremonial song in homage to the Pachamama, deity of the Andean ancestral peoples. With incense and myrrh, Maryta enters the stage taking the audience through the aroma, sound, costumes and images to a deep space. With sounds of the Andean "box" (an Andean drum) she sings coplas ("couplets") and bagualas (a type of folk music originating in NE Argentina) referring to the seasons and ceremonies that accompany the course of the earth's life cycle. To the strings of the guitar she adds the poems and melodies of Argentine singer, songwriter, guitarist, and writer Atahualpa Yupanqui ( Protected content ) and popular singer Mercedes Sosa ( Protected content ), Argentine singer and one of the preeminent exponents of nueva canción - "new song"
