Tlen-Huicani to Perform at AASU

Savannah, GA—The Mexican folk music group, Tlen-Huicani, will perform at Armstrong Atlantic State University on February 21. The concert is sponsored by AASU's Campus Union Board and will be held at 1:00 P.M. in AASU's Shearouse Plaza. AASU's International Student Organization will host a coffee following the performance. The event is free and open to the public.

Tlen-Huicani is an Aztec word that means "The Singers." Since their foundation in 1973, the sextet has remained one of the most faithful interpreters of the traditional folk music of Veracruz, Peru, Colombia, Paraguay, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, and other Latin American countries.

Maestro Alberto de la Rosa is respected for his musicianship throughout Mexico and is considered among the most outstanding folk harpists in the world. The centerpiece of their music is the "harpa jarocha" or folk harp, which is an instrument that widely represents Latin American countries.
