Willian Portilla

Willian comes from the Kichwa nation of the Imbaya community, which is located in the province of Imbabura, Ecuador. Family members and community taught him at an early age the traditional rhythms of the Andes. These teaching lead him to perform with many talented musicians and explore diverse musical genre. This motivated him to form TRIBU and to record their first cd NORTH AND SOUTH. TRIBU’s work is based on the andino musical concept incorporating traditional flute instruments with world beats and the natural sounds of Mother Earth - creating a new style of Andes music. The second cd SOL, continues to extend this fusion expression producing sounds of healing, happiness and dance!

To be released in the summer of 2014 a third CD titled ANAKU. It is a culmination of TRIBU's musical experiences while living abroad in North America.
