Short bio

The Zampoñistas are Australia’s premier Bolivian Pan Pipe Marching Band. (Not much competition, you say!)

Their act is unique. They are not your usual panpipe band that you might see busking in the City Mall. The haunting tones of the Andean panpipes and a heartbeat of percussion create a swirling, syncopated, high energy chorus of sound, the sounds of the Inca realm.

Dressed in ponchos, they weave in and out of crowds, twisting, turning, spinning– totally engaging audiences and bystanders alike!

Some call it guerrilla music, some call it pop-up music. They bring joy and delight wherever they play.

The Zampoñistas play their Inca tunes in the traditional way – splitting the musical scale between two set of players, creates an exciting dynamic. The Incas pioneered stereo sound!

The Zampoñistas have performed at the Port Fairy and National Folk Festivals, the Darebin Music Feast, Melbourne’s Ventana Latina festival and many other community and music events.

The band is united by three things: their love of panpipe music, their love of chocolate, and an unstoppable but totally irrational belief in world domination by panpipes!

¡Viva los Zampoñistas!
