    The Grupo Tucandira, a five-member group of Colombian vocalists and musicians directed by Arecio Manjarres García, will perform music from the Llano Region of the Meta province of Columbia. Residency activities will include class presentations and a culminating public performance. The group will perform on a variety of instruments, including the harp specific to the llano region, the cuatro (a small four-string guitar), the pentola (a five-string guitar that is modeled on the four string bandola, invented by Manjarres García), the transversal flute, and percussion (especially maracas). Nadith Johana Senejoa Cristancho, Rosny Portaccio Fontalvo, Arecio Manjarres García, Yudi Helena Pardo Santamaría, and Yesid Castro Triana will perform.
