Jim & Yobany 1-promo-1

Yobany & Jim 

Clinical Psychologist Yobany Pardo and Nutritionist-Herbalist Jim Williams met in 2008 at the “World Summit to Discuss Excessively Long & Fruitless Meetings” held in beautiful Gary, Indiana.  When Jim struck up a conversation about music, Yobany shared his passion for playing the harp of his native Columbia.  The two musicians quickly joined forces, Jim on guitar, bass and pennywhistle, and Yobany on harp and guitar.  Their inspired performances of traditional South American folk music—with some Celtic tunes sprinkled in—keep them in-demand.  Ironically, they have been invited to perform at the very next “World Summit to D. E. L. & F. Mtgs.”, as soon as the original 2008 meeting comes to a close.
