Lokandes are fronted by whirlwind musical maestro Kanti Qena and related their name to the combination of two words: ‘Crazy’ and ‘Andes’ which represent the intention of their music; Crazy music from the Andes. The project aims to create alternative music, taking the melodies and energy of Andean music and bringing it up to date; creating a fusion of traditional roots and Afro-Andean rhythms with other contemporary genres such as Reggae, Cumbia, Ska, Jazz, Son, Rumba Folk and funky Latin rhythms.
They unite musicians and instruments from Peru, Bolivia, Spain, France, China, Chile and the UK, and set their highly original music, alongside socially conscious lyrics and a super-tight rhythm section bringing awareness to Latin-American and world-wide cultures with their music.
