Icaro, Shamanic Songs - Tito la Rosa. The magical songs called "icaros" in the Amazon region of Peru, are prayers or invocations sung by master herbalists and medicine men during ceremonies wiht sacred plants. That music puts in movement great powers, which can reveal "the masks that are beneath the face" as the poet Cesar Calvo said.
KINTU Ofernda is a musical exploration of the three dimensions of the Great Andean Universe. The World Within; the Uccu Pacha, The Here And Now; the Kai Pacha, and The World Above; the Hanan Pacha. In the Andean world, every flower, every star, every stone and dew drop, as well as each and every human being is a Universe, or "Pacha" a perfect totality which is complemented in kind by another larger and more perfect totality; this is a never ending process.
Tito La Rosa's New CD with Tavo Castillo. The men & woman of ancient Nasca culture, a culture of sand, wind and water, read the past and future in the stars. Inscribed on these lines upon sand, are the memories and presence of this desert's timelessness.
This musical project was born years ago in the precints of the Antropological Museum of Lima, Peru. In there we had our first contact with the original instruments of the Pre-inca times (2,000 years ago). We felt that it was Mother Earth singing throug the ceramic instruments, air sounding through the feathers, water, fire and earth crying inside the whistling pottery. Later on, we knitted together all these sonorous universes to ancestral myths legends and rituals. This was how Ritual was born.
The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor by Tito la Rosa. For his Silver Wave debut, Peruvian wind player Tito La Rosa addresses a familiar theme--a future socio-spiritual reunification of the Americas--and musically articulates the vision with an agreeable mix of humility and passion. La Rosa, a descendant of the Quechua Indians of the Andes, enlists the talents of labelmate Mary Youngblood (Native American flute) to intertwine the native musical traditions of two hemispheres, and the result is attractively reverent and reflective, flavored with occasional displays of dignified celebration.
