Season 2 – Week #19: An Empty Room with Andino Suns – “Estado de Nada”

The Spanish language makes its return to the Empty Room series this week with the Andino Suns’ performance of their song “Estado de Nada”!  In the video, the trio is accompanied by violinist Karley Parovsky of the Regina Symphony Orchestra. Andino Suns have been captivating audiences throughout Canada with fiery instrumentation, inspirational live performances and a resounding message of freedom, hope and love. Their worldly music fuses the vibrant traditional sounds of Latin America with modern grooves and rhythms.  Andino Suns will be touring their dance party throughout Western Canada in the Fall of 2016 (including a stop at the CCC in October) to promote the release of their third Album – Madera.  For more on Andino Suns and their upcoming tour go to  www.andinosuns.com.
