Join us for an afternoon where the vibration of ancestral instruments transform into contemporary sounds. We are happy to host artists Tito La Rosa and Pawkarmayta; two generations of Peruvian musicians committed to our culture. We invite you to be part of this dialogue between sounds. 

Tito La Rosa | Biography

Tito La Rosa is a Peruvian musician, composer, musical instruments maker, and sound healer through ritual music. For the last 40 years he has worked with healing through sound, using ancestral instruments from ancient Peru and contemporary instruments from different parts of the world.

Within his musical repertoire he incorporates the sonic universe of ancient Peru through handmade instruments such as stone ocarinas, bone quenas, feather and ceramic antaras, whistling vessels, pututos, quenas and bamboo flutes, drums and rattles; creating a sacred, acoustic and healing space, establishing a dialogue of the times to fulfill an inner journey.

Tito has taken his musical proposal to different parts of the world, participating in various cultural events and international festivals. He has 12 musical productions, where he highlights the "Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor" nominated as the best music album in the world at NAMA (Native American Music Awards). In addition, he was invited by the Japanese musician Kitaro to participate in his album "Thinking of You", which won a Grammy in 2000.

He currently lives in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco (Peru), where he has founded the "Escuela de Sonidos Perú", the "Museo del Sonido" and the "Casa del Sonido", a space where he shares retreats, training workshops and different experiences of deep work with sound and tradition.

Pawkarmayta | Biography

Born in Cusco, Peru; Pawkarmayta (Anthony Paucarmayta) is the great promise of Peruvian electronic music and its decentralization outside of the capital Lima. His productions carry, in a dark key, the spirit of distinct worlds that the tradition of Andean culture offers. His music has been released by labels around the world and his productions published in international blogs and magazines that specialize in new musical trends.
