Inti Illimani Histórico
Inti-Illimani was formed in 1967 and quickly became one of the pioneering groups of the New Chilean Song Movement. They have appeared on Amnesty International stages with Peter Gabriel , Bruce Springsteen, Sting, and Wynton Marsalis; at benefit concerts with Paco Peña, John Williams, Emma Thompson, Karen Matheson, Maria Farantouri and Salsa Celtica, and have shared stages with Quilapayun, Federico Fellini, Patricio Manns, Arja Saijonmaa, Holly Near, Pete Seeger, Mercedes Sosa and Youssou'n'Dour.
They were honored with the 1990 Lion of Venice, a Human Rights Award from UC Berkeley in 1997, and a nomination from the British Academy of Music for the 1982 BBC Film The Flight of the Condor.
With more than 40 recordings, hundreds of concerts worldwide, Inti-Illimani Histórico continues to enthrall audiences with their unique blend of South American Roots, Andean, Afro, Creole and Classical music.
