Join us for a beautiful evening of healing music, ceremony and celebration.
Wachan Martika and Shiqwarkenty are Willkasara, wisdom keepers from the Andes of Peru. They have been traveling to Japan, Europe, the United States and South America sharing their cultural heritage.
Wachan is an Inca medicine man. He was born and raised in the high mountains of Cuzco, Peru. Wachan comes from a long lineage of medicine people.
Martika comes from the Mochicas heritage, the Tayrona and the Kogis in the high Andes of Colombia, Sierra Nevada. Martika is a Harawico Chayna - the keeper of the ancient sacred songs. Shiqwarkenty was born in the Temple of the Moon in Cuzco, Peru.
She sings and shares her loving ways with all of us. Together they share the teachings that have been passed down to them generation after generation, the wisdom that has been kept alive for thousands of years from their ancestors the Incas.
Wachan is also a teacher of ancient music, composer and music director, widely know as Harawiko, keeper of the sacred sound and channeler of healing music. He has produced six CDs, including the new release, Love is All.
Marika has also been sharing her love through sacred sound healing music. She is a mother, loves to work with children and help them to find their voice. She is also the founder of Ayni, the gift of giving foundation, a 501 c 3 non-profit. Her mission is to enrich the lives of homeless children from Peru and to preserve and teach them the ancient traditions of the Inca people so that these traditions stay as a precious heritage for the future generations.
Shiqwarkenty is a naturally gifted musician. She plays the traditional Incan flutes, piano, drums, and recently she released a new meditation CD called The tree of Life, inspiring her generation to have love, respect, and connect with Pachamama/Mother Earth, using the Universal Language of the Heart through Sacred Sound- healing the body, mind and heart.
We invite you to enter in to the Temple of Sacred Transformation, New Beginning, and Sacred Ayni, the Andean concept of reciprocity and bringing balance, providing the foundation for how the people relate to each other as well as how they relate to nature.bringing new seeds of hope and change through the sacred sound and prayers from the Ancient Inca lineage. The translation of Willkasara is "the sacred corn."
