CHARLOTTE STREET FOUNDATION STUDIO RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community

Amado Espinoza

Headshot

Amado Espinoza, from Cochabamba, Bolivia, is a unique performing artist that respects his folk traditions of the Andes Mountains, while creating compositions that are sincere to his musical-wanderlust personality.  He specializes in the Bolivian charango, a small ten-stringed guitar, but demonstrates mastery of over 40 instruments, including latin, african and arabic percussion, and native flutes from all over the world. A multi-faceted performer, Amado also guides sound meditations, recycled instrument workshops, and is a respected instrument maker in South America and beyond.

“The art in my music and instrument building serves not only as a powerful tool for personal discovery, it is a subtle invocation for people to bridge back to nature. It is a catalyst, an instrument for change that sets subjective parameters for reflection and spirituality. It emanates good will, respecting differences and promoting unity, meant to be enjoyed by all ages and cultures, and I feel blessed for the opportunity of sharing and continuing my journey here in Kansas City.”
