The roots of my work and research are inspired by ancient and nearly-universal practices. Its form reflects the modern fields of holistic healing arts, such as music medicine, shamanism, psychology, process integration sessions, music production, ancient music instruments, indigenous wisdom, media and approaches to medical ethnomusicology.

An exploration of earth-centered spirituality, inspired by indigenous cosmologies from the Andes and Amazon of Peru. I aim to deepen our understanding of human-nature relationships in this time of transition we are all going through. Opening pathways which allow us to find our own unique place in this sacred web of life. The principle that an intimate and sincere relationship with ourselves and the natural-spiritual world is essential for the journey into the soul.

Earth and humanity are going through profound transformations. We are presently in an awakening journey that is taking us into higher and deeper states of awareness, a new reality of being and doing. This is a dawn of new possibilities and challenges, a shift in the paradigm we are currently living in. The intention of my work is to provide healing ways and insights towards a holo-shamanic vision, which aim to encourage the remembrance of our soul’s inner knowing and to reestablish a deeper relationship with ourselves, our body-mind-spirit, the sacredness of earth and all our relations.

“Meraya is an audiovisual poetic journey that shows Shipibo-Konibo visions from an indigenous logic; letting the natural and free expression of ancestral wisdom flow. Beyond purely anthropological documentaries, there are few films that relate to Shipibo experiences, and Meraya is one of them.

The proposal developed by Director Pedro Favaron introduces the viewer into the Amazon through the intertwining of fundamental art and everyday practices of Shipibo civilization: kené patterns and textile craft, and an understanding and profound respect for the forest and its beings (earthly and spiritual). These elements relate to equilibrium and to the ordered beauty of connecting.

As part of its visual and narrative landscapes, Meraya has several layers of sonority. Ikaros, or ayahuasca chants, and the forest, with its birds, rivers, rain, plants, and myriad animals, are all intermingled with Fred Clarke Álvarez’s delicate musical arrangements and compositions. This juxtaposition creates a primeval and contemporary view of Shipibo-Konibo culture in which there are no voice-overs nor animations; rather, experience at its raw”.

Sounds of Pucllana (2019)

Music was a fundamental part in the activities of the ceremonial center: banquets, remodelling, funerals, sacrifices and rituals were accompanied by melodies, bringing about spiritual interactions between people and their gods. Sounds of Pucllana brings to the present the echoes of our ancestors from Lima and Wari cultures, contained in ceramic antaras, whistles, quenas and rattles. I published next to Ronald Sanchez Pacheco, Sounds of Pucllana. This is a production for the Museum Huaca Pucllana of Lima recording original instruments of their collection. We designed the first sound/music experience in an archeological site in Peru, where Sound of Pucllana became part of the experience in the museum itself and at site.
