About

Kuyayky’s story began in the 1970’s when Jose Hurtado Zamudio, a university professor and musicologist, married educator and singer Edda Bonilla Peña (of the Conjunto Alma Jaujina). Deeply committed to fostering the arts and culture in Peru, Jose and Edda embarked their efforts on forming choirs and musical groups throughout Peru’s central region.

Four years ago this week we began one of our most ambitious projects, the Kuyayky Children's Orchestra of Jauja. This has through and through been a labor of love and perseverance for ourselves and our ayllu (which includes many of you). We believe in the power of music in shaping childrens' minds and in improving and equalizing society as a whole. Furthermore, we believe in building the identity of these Andean children with whom we identify ourselves and our future. #Xauxa #kuyayky #IndigenousYouthRising #MusicIsLife

Today Peru celebrates the day of Afro-Peruvian culture. What better way to do it, than remembering one of the most legendary works of the great researcher and artist Victoria Santa Cruz. #DíadelaCulturaAfroperuana
