His Main instrument “The Kena”, is normally played in one key, but Mauricio has created his own system to play in all keys and quarter tones; allowing for the melancholic sounds of an ancient culture to combine with contemporary jazz styles, Asian sounds, and a rich mixture of Afro-Andean grooves.
His music has a distinct identity with a strong personal narrative, giving his compositions vibrancy and a strange familiarity. www.mvelasierra.com

His band combines musicians from all over the world, coming from very different musical styles:
Henrik Jensen (Double Bass), Camilo Menjura (Guitar),  Jenny Adejayan (Cello), Gregorio Merchan (Percussion & Drums)
Mauricio Velasierra (Kena Flutes & Moceños),  
Special Guest: Stephanie O'Brien (Paraguayan Harp, Voice).
Songlines Music Awards
Mauricio Velasierra is nominated in the Songlines Music Awards 2012
