Official Trailer in English "The Water Song" - by @kuyaykyfnd . Co-produced with @ciaorose.producciones

In the Andes our ancestors understood that water was the matrix of life, for millennia we have talked, sung, and grown with it reciprocally as an ayllu. Knowing that water is fundamental for all living beings. Today, as our glaciers are disappearing, we once again meditate with our harawi and hualina songs to reconnect with our ancestral knowledge systems #YakuTaki #TheWaterSong #Kuyayky

The Water Song - Trailer Oficial #MuyPronto #indigenousknowledge #water #yakumama #unu
En los Andes nuestros antepasados entendieron que el agua era la matriz de la vida, por milenia hemos conversado, cantado, bailado y crecido con ella. Sabíendo que es fundamental para todos los seres vivos. Hoy que nuestros glaciares van desapareciendo, meditamos con nuestros wallallos y hualinas para reconectarnos con nuestro conocimiento ancestral.

Feliz Día del Maestro
Venimos de un gran legado de educadores que por siglos han trabajado por un mejor país.
Aquí un homenaje con un tema de nuestro padre, otro gran maestro, Jose Hurtado

Honored to be able to sing together as an ayllu and this time with our young Kuyayky Children's and Youth Orchestra first violin Said Montejo Rosales and even moreso with the incredibly talented Maestro Arón Mucha in the saxophone! The type of collaboration we could only dream of. Waqaypaq!
The single of "Amauta" will hopefully be released and mixed at a later date.
