Response from Eco Del Sur:
Thanks Alex, we really had a good time and enjoyed performing at your party.
Eco Del Sur was literally a dream come true for our wedding day. They were easy to work with, responsive, professional, and on top of all this, made our wedding day unforgettable with their fantastic music. My husband and I were looking for a traditional Andean group, and Eco del Sur could not have been more perfect for what we had in mind. We had an intimate beach ceremony with about 30 people, and every single one of our guests commented on how they loved the music. Can't wait to hear them again !!! Jorge, you guys are the BEST !!!! Mil gracias.
Response from Eco Del Sur:
