Inti-Illimani were an important part of Chile´s folk movement "La Nueva Cancion Chilena". After the military putsch in 1973 they went into exile and lived in Italy until 1988. When they finally returned to Chile Thousands of people celebrated them as their return was like a symbol of the re-creation of a free cultural Chile.
Their list of musical co-operations, awards and musical publications is as long as their extraordinary history. To name a few: Inti-Illimani appeared on stages for Amnesty International and for the Victor Jara Foundation with artists like Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, Mercedes Sosa, Wynton Marsalis and John Williams - they also shared the stage with Federico Fellini, Patricio Manns, Arja Saijonmaa, Holly Near, Yousssou N` Dour and Pete Seeger. They co-operated with Francesca Gagnon, aka the "Voice of Algeria" of Cirque du Soleil. Most recently, in March of 2014, Inti-Illimani was invited by Joan Baez to perform with her during her South American tour. She will have a guest appearance on Inti-Illimani´s new album.
Playing on more than 30 wind, string and percussion instruments, Inti-Illimani's compositions are a treasure for the human spirit. Their music, wedded in traditional Latin American roots, captures at once the very personal colours of their experiences while simultaneously appealing to the universal in us all.
"Few Latin American acts can rival this Chilean group in terms of the sheer beauty of sound. Much like a Zen affirmation, Inti-Illimani's music floats within your soul, filling it with calmness and hope."
(The Los Angeles Times)
"From the first strums on the charango, Inti-Illimani proceeded to keep the audience spellbound for the next 90 minutes ... a trademark mix of traditional Latin American melodies cross-pollinated with European-style chamber music and occasional nods to jazz. Inti-Illimani is proof that the sax and the sikus (pan pipes) need not be strangers."
(the Globe And Mail, Toronto)
"An Inti-Illimani concert is a wild ride through Latin music, a whirlwind of Andean folk tunes, tangos from Argentina, Brazilian sambas, and throbbing, sobbing love songs from Mexico. ..all the players displayed relentless virtuosity in a concert that was pure exhilaration to the very end."
(The Washington Post)
