Sept. 21 and 22, Peruvian music and dance ensemble, Inca Son, participated in a residency in the College of the Arts. Interweaving lessons on Andean culture with flute demonstrations and skillful storytelling, Inca Son led workshops for more than 1,000 students in theater and performance studies, music and visual arts appreciation classes.
Founded by Cesar Villalobos, Inca Son has performed around the world, including Carnegie Hall, the United Nations and the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian.
Inca Son’s residency is part of Kennesaw State’s “Year of Peru,” a yearlong interdisciplinary program designed to connect KSU and the community with cultures around the world.
