​Huayllipacha (pronounced: why-lee-pacha) was conceived in 1987 by several Peruvian youths from the Andes. As a tribute to their culture and their ancestors, these talented and dedicated musicians named the group using the ancient language of Inca-Quechua. "Huaylli" means "song of triumph," and "Pacha" means "the earth." To simplify, "Singing to the Earth."

Playing a blend of traditional and contemporary music from their homeland are brothersFredy, David and Juan Salazar-Quispe. Their music provides the listener with beautiful and mystical sounds that embody the magic of life, all creatures and all things. This group lives, performs, and teaches in Humboldt County, but has traveled and performed all across the U.S.A. People of all ages and from all walks of life can appreciate the natural and captivating sounds used to produce the haunting and memorable music of the Peruvian Andes.

Concert time is 7:30 p.m. at the Fortuna Monday Club, 610 Main Street in Fortuna. Ticket prices are $10 General Admission and $8 Students and Seniors.
Doors open at 6:45 p.m.
