Raymis, Ecuador


Raymis is a new group born from the Ecuadorian folk music group Sisay. Sisay first visited Japan in 2005, and came to WMDF two times. While based on the folk music of Ecuador, the Andes and traditional Latin music, Sisay incorporated modern musical elements resulting in their own “World Music”. Raymis continues the tradition of cherishing the roots of Ecuador’s traditional music through a new combination of Sisay’s veteran musicians and other traditional Ecuadorian musicians. Raymis in the Kichua language means “energetic” or “fun”: please enjoy the uplifting feeling and strength of this South American folk music.
