Cantamigo is the combination of two Spanish words: Cantar (sing) + amigo (friend). Eduardo Rocha founded “Cantamigo” in Lima, Peru, in 1978.
The foundation of “Cantamigo” is the constant interaction between the musicians and the public. As a result of this, a nice atmosphere is created, in which everyone can enjoy the music. In some South American countries, this effect is called “Peña”, “Descarga”, or “Tertulia”.
