Today is our hometown's anniversary. The pandemic has been really tough on Jauja, but our spirit, our music, our children persist against a precarious health system 🙌🏾. Here the first lines transcribed by our co-founder Jose Hurtado Zamudio of one of the oldest songs from the Yauyokumus in Hatun Xauxa, a prayer in dire times that hundreds of years later remains relevant.
-excerpt from "Jergakumu"
Feliz día Jauja- we know that we have an obligation to continue to research, teach, create, and perform in order to discover and share with the world the invaluable knowledge that our culture holds.
To celebrate here's our Kuyayky Children's Orchestra of Jauja performing an arrangement of our ancient Jergakumu. Filmed and edited by our cousin, the very talented Henry Bonilla 🙌🏾
