Considered the heir to famous diva and singer Yma Sumac, the renowned Peruvian soprano Sylvia Falcón possesses one of the most beautiful voices in the Andean world. Falcon’s music has been collected mostly from the traditional repertoire of the Andes which consists of melodies related to love stories, ancient myths, carnival music, harvest dances, etc.
Sylvia’s discography includes productions recorded with Peruvian guitarist Daniel Kirwayo such as Quilla lluqsimun (2008), Inkario (2014), El cóndor pasa – 100 años (2014), among others.
Sylvia Falcon will be singing songs primarily in Quechua, the native language of the Andes. She will be accompanied by Peruvian musician Carlos Bernales Vilca on the keyboards.
Co-sponsored with the Department of Music at NYU, and the Native Studies Forum.
