South American quartet Andes Manta graced us with their presence at the studios of West Virginia Public Broadcasting. With large drums, guitars, and a myriad of flutes, the four Lopez brothers performed a few of their favorite selections in the Andean tradition. The four Brothers, Fernando, Luis, Bolivar, and Jorge, also spoke of their Ecuadorian upbringing, their instruments, and the uniqueness of their Andean music. 

Andes Manta made the trip to West Virginia to put on shows for area schools and for a concert presented by Footmad on Saturday, April 6th at 7:30 PM at the Culture Center in Charleston. You can order tickets here
