Raymis, Ecuador


WMDF regulars will know of Ecuadorian music through our frequent supporters “Sisay” and through this offshoot group “Raymis”. While based on the folk music of Ecuador, the Andes and traditional Latin music, these artists incorporate modern musical elements to result in their own “World Music”. They work in a tradition of cherishing the roots of Ecuador’s traditional music through a new combination of veteran musicians and other Ecuadorian practitioners. Raymis in the native Kichua language means “energetic” or “fun”. WMDF welcomes back the uplifting feeling and strength of this unique South American collaboration.
