Our Junior Conductor of the Kuyayky Children's Orchestra Jauja Arturo Mayor Auqui has been admitted to the prestigious School of Performing Arts at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, earning the second highest score in mathematics in the admission exams. We could not be more proud. Arturo was one of the first children to join the orchestra without any prior knowledge of music. With us he has become a talented multi-instrumentalist, singer, and conductor. This is the second time that one of our students gets admitted into this prestigious institution, the first was Stefany Solís Gómez last year. Join us in congratulating them for their hard work. #KuyaykyScholars #KCOJauja #KuyaykyFoundation #indigenousyouthrising

Nuestras condolencias para la familia y amigos de un grande de la lutheria peruana. The creator of the Atempo Peruvian cajones has left us. We ourselves own a few of his amazing instruments. Alexis' art will continue to resonate in the thousands of professional cajones that will continue to be played worldwide. Rest in power.
