Raymi was formed by a group of young musicians in 2004. While the band is based in Washington DC, their music brings the hunting sounds and mystic power from Los Andes to the rest of the Americas. Raymi uses traditional instruments such as zampoñas, mosceños, quenas and tarkas in context with the classic band instrumentation; exploring the possibilities that the bass, guitars, keyboards and trap drums can have together with the Andes tradition. Raymi is a new musical language for many, a place from which contemporary universal music can be seen through to a dimension of unity and understanding. RAYMIs passion for it's roots is reflected on it's music, it's love for tradition and knowledge can be heard in it's sound. Raymi's commitment with the peoples of the world is the seed that will grow and will be harvested by future generations so that the new world can enjoy the fruits of Raymi's focus on human creation.
