This digital album contains a selection of eleven ikaros and arkanas sung by male and female shamanic healers from the Shipibo tribe who live along the river Ucayali and its tributaries in the Peruvian Amazon. Onanyaboan Bewá means the “songs of the shaman” and this recording carries messages from Mother Earth through the songs of Amazonian plant spirits transmitted to the shaman.
All the songs have been recorded live in healing ceremonies between June and November 2010 at the Temple of the Way of Light (www.templeofthewayoflight.org
) near Iquitos, Peru.
All profits from the sale of this digital download will be split 80% between the featured indigenous healers and 20% to the Alianza Arkana (alianzaarkana.org
) – a Peruvian non-profit organization set up to help protect the Peruvian Amazon and preserve the culture and cosmo-vision of its indigenous people, particularly the Shipibo.
