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.

Honored to have been recognized by UPenn and both proud and thankful for the work of Prof. Américo Mendoza-Morí for Quechua revitalization projects and the promotion of Andean culture as a whole. For us the recognition of both of our co-founders represented an important step in demonstrating the important legacy of Andean dualism and complementarity that persists throughout our people today. #IndigenousRising #HonoringourElders #AndeanCulture #AndeanStudies #Yanantin #Ayllu #Kuyayky #KuyaykyFoundation #QuechuaUpenn #Xauxa

There are no words to express our loss today. Gracias por tanto tía , querida.
Author, singer, educator, cultural promoter, advocate for the poor, speaker, storyteller, dancer, devoted mother, aunt, wife, grandmother and friend. Our dear aunt Rina Hebé Bonilla Peña of the great Bonilla Peña ayllu will continue to be an inspiration to us now and always.

"...donde yace en dormida forzosa la 'Princesa Ocllo', él cual príncipe encantado la tomará entre sus brazos, la cubrirá, la besará, y ella por siempre despertará...¡sí!...¡sí!... despertará.

Entonces, los dos unirán sus vidas por siempre, y al retornar vencedores a -Urepamil- sobre briosos caballos locos, protegerán hasta la eternidad su dinastía de estirpe regía y pura. Será así que todos los urepamileños viviremos felices...sí muy felices hasta la consumación de los siglos. Amén." (Bonilla Peña, 2001: (379-80))
