"The Great Inka Road" Family Day 2 - Music & Dance of Peru & Ecuador
The National Museum of the American Indian celebrates its newest exhibit, "The Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire," and National Hispanic Heritage Month with a day-long program of family activities and performances. In this video, the musical group Inca Wayra provides music for performances by the Washington, DC cultural groups, Asociacion Clutural "Samay" and Tradiciones Huamanange. These groups represent two of the six South American countries that had been included the Inka Empire's expanse, Peru and Ecuador. This is the first of two performances given by these organizations. This performance was webcast live and recorded in the Potomac Atrium of the National Museum of the American Indian on September 13, 2015.
