Kantu Inka presented by Pioneer Center Youth Programs

Kantu Inka presented by Pioneer Center Youth Programs

Carlos Ocampo and Julie Lozada Ocampo unite their musical and teaching experience performing as Kantu Inka. A professional Andean musician and composer for over 25 years in the Cusco region of Peru, Carlos is proficient on charango, guitar, zampoña, quena, and bombo. Julie plays zampoña and percussion, was Nevada’s State World Language Teacher of the Year in 2014 and is now retired after 30 years as a Spanish teacher (NBCT 2011-2021). Since 2003, Kantu Inka has taught Peruvian culture, history, and geography with Andean instruments to over 30,000 students of all ages in Nevada and California.

Kantu Inka’s bilingual performance programs incorporate world language, fine arts, and social studies. Students are encouraged to play instruments, dance to Peruvian rhythms, and interact with the musicians. Julie and Carlos wear colorful clothing of the Andes while explaining the construction and history of the traditional instruments as well as how Peruvian music reflects the three geographical regions of the country.
