AN EVENING OF TOP-FLIGHT TALENT – Ecka Janus performs Tuesday evening during the Eagle and Condor Concert at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre. The performance featured the Putumayo Group from Colombia, the Kaska Dene Drummers, the All Nation Dancers, and DJ Rubisel. ‘The Eagle and the Condor’ is an ancient Amazon prophecy that speaks of human societies splitting into two paths – that of the Eagle (North) and that of the Condor (South). The prophecy says that during the next 500-year period, beginning in 1990, the potential would arise for the Eagle and Condor to come together and fly in the same sky.
