The Italian group Trencito de los Andes has done several etno-musical researchers and run innovative experiments on different sounds which have allow them to spread authentically Ecuadorian Andrean sounds among their audience.
Formed by the Clemente brothers and a cohort of collaborators from all over the Andean world, Trencito de los Andes has created pieces which have quickly entered the popular repertoire. In 2009, with 21 albums, their thirty-four years of professional and musical career came to a halt, and the group presented their last show in Quito. Today, Trencito de los Andes came back to present their new project called “Il Laboratorio delle Uova Quadre” (The Square eggs laboratory).
