Mystic Warriors was founded in 1993 by Andres and Marco Mallea. They wanted to make Andean folk music more accessible to American audiences so they added contemporary instruments, including guitar synthesizers, bass and drums.
Mystic Warriors has performed all over the United States at numerous venues, including the Smithsonian Institution, the Kennedy Center, colleges and universities, and festivals and fairs. In 1994, they were invited to perform at the White House as part of a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
