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.

We're celebrating another year of the Kuyayky Children's Orchestra Jauja!!! We were the very first children's orchestra in this small town 11, 200 feet above sea level in the Peruvian Andes where we saw the incredible potential of these children. Here six of our founding students are playing and being interviewed by a radio station in Jauja as well as some of their parents to commemorate the anniversary of KCO Jauja. Upwards and onwards! Felicitaciones Kuyayky Jauja, somos la primera orquesta sinfónica infantil de Jauja, continuen siendo el ejemplo para todos los otros niños, sigamos adelante ❤️❤️ #IndigenousYouthRising#MusicforChange#Kuyayky#Jauja#Xauxa
