August 7th: Eco Del Sur
Eco Del Sur means “echoes of the south” and the group was founded in 2000 with the idea to preserve the heritage and culture of different Latin American regions. The group’s first album was released in 2001. The performers include Jorge Gomez and Julio Verano from Colombia, Robert F. Hernandez and Marlon Lopez from Ecuador, Enrique Lombardo from Paraguay, and Alfredo de la Rosa from Dominican Republic.
The music of Eco Del Sur includes a wide range of styles and rhythms. Some of these rhythms include the huayňo, sanjuanito, carnaval, chacarera, joropo, zamba, cueca and were influenced by the Pre-Columbian and the Spanish cultural heritages. Other rhythms characteristic of the Pacific Coast, Atlantic Coast and the Caribbean include the cumbia, porros, guajira, lando, festejo, etc; these rhythms had a great contribution from the African heritage and culture.
Palmer Square will be following CDC guidelines, state and local mandates, and industry best practices to ensure the health and safety of our audience and artists.
