AMADO ESPINOZA QUARTET
Amado Espinoza Quartet brings Andean soul to the American heartland. Amado plays
traditional Andean instruments – the charango and sikus, as well as the mandolin and
didgeridoo. He teams up with Andres Ramirez on percussion, Tina Bilberry on violin, and
Johnny Hamil on bass, to bring a contemporary electric feel to Amado’s dynamic compositions.
Expanding ideas of sound, texture and space, they invoke the musical ancestors of us all and
activate the music that is alive in all our DNA. The journey is both ritual and joyous
Amado Espinoza Quartet premiers their new album, Q’ansas CD, at the Record Bar, Friday, July 15, 2022.
