PROGRAM NOTES
Since its founding in 1976 in Bogotá, Quintet of the Americas has delighted in bringing Colombian folk-inspired music to its audiences. During its first year, the Quintet was hired to perform on a weekly radio program for the Colombian National Radio. This led to contact with Colombian composers, the commissioning of new works and the opportunity for the group to work with Jorge Olaya Munoz, who presented the Quintet with many of the dances on this CD. The Quintet brought these popular traditional dances back to the United States and has been including them on concerts ever since. Over the years, more dances were added to the repertoire. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Quintet has recorded this collection.
