Shamans of Peru CD

The Shamans of Peru – Ceremonial Chants, Icaros, and Music

This unique set of recordings documents a collection of ceremonial chants and Ayahuasca icaros on CD.

Tracks 1-3 San Pedro ceremony held in Puruchucu, at the head of the Rimac valley. The ruins of this sacred site or huaca date back to pre-Inca times and have been accurately reconstructed. Setting the scene for the ceremony, three musicians play replicas of pre-Hispanic instruments. Alonso del Rio says: ‘while keeping to their original tuning, we have explored the instruments musical possibilities to give an idea of what the music could have been like in pre-Colombian times. The melodies came to us through the ancestral memory evoked through medicinal plants like San Pedro and Ayahuasca’. Instruments: the ceramic notch flutes of the Chincha civilization, Nazca panpipes or ‘antaras’ with their special tuning similar to Oriental scales, and Nazca drums.

The Mesa Nortena is a particular ceremonial tradition best conserved in the region of ‘Las Huaringas’, high and remote sacred lakes in the northern Department of Piura.

There are probably only a few good maestros who continue this ancient tradition in Peru today. The rest simply work with the externalities of the mesa, while giving their clients minimal doses of the visionary San Pedro cactus. Originally more importance was given to the medicine, which must be in the organism of the participants as well as the maestro for the power to flow. The mesa then served to intensify the power of the plant.

An altered state is needed to enter the symbolic world of the objects on the mesa (the word refers to the altar as well as the ceremony itself). The abundance of macerated plants, perfumes and smells employed in the mesa function to move the feelings associated with one’s memories. At a deep level, sensations are translated into vibrations which the medicine brings to consciousness so that associated hurt and pain can be ‘re-membered’ again and a new attitude can emerge.

The singado, or absorption of macerated tobacco juice through the nostrils involves another power medicine which is used to intensify the San Pedro at regular intervals. The instruction from the maestro to pour up the left or right nostril reflects the notion of duality found in shamanic disciplines all over the world: masculine and feminine, hot and cold, upper world and earth, expansion and contraction, flowing and stagnant. Illness arises from one of these polarities loosing equilibrium. The word singado comes from the Quechua word singa meaning nose and is perhaps an Andean notion of Pranayama!

Also audible in the following two mesas 4- 5 are the clicking of chontas, or black bamboo sticks used for cleansing people’s auras and the spraying from the maestro and assistants’ mouths, of perfumes and plant macerations over the participants.

The tendency to commercialise a tradition is inherent in urbanization and seeing things for their utility and business. For example mesas are sometimes held so that lawyers win legal battles. Piles of documents are laid on the mesa so that the power works on them and they win their case. In this way a shamanic ceremony is degraded to folklore. We can try to reconstruct the original tradition to how it was in pre-Colombian times and remove the images of Sarita Colonia and the other saints, crucifixes, photos etc., which have accumulated throughout the centuries and evolved the mesa into the mestizo tradition which survives today. Left behind are the ancient stones, magic plant brews and the enchanted waters of the lakes of Las Huaringas, being the original elements, which have survived underneath.

Track 4 Mesa with Alejandro Sanchez. Maestro Sanchez lives in Comas, a distant suburb of Lima which began in the 1960s as a shanty town. It is surrounded by impressive parched stony desert hills. The maestro’s house is at the end of a road near the cemetery and overlooks this immense settlement from where he draws his clients. Sanchez was born in Sondorillo near the legendary sacred lakes of Las Huaringas. At age 11, while still at school, he seemed to have perceptions and to be able foresee things accurately. His astonished teachers thought he was having hallucinations and called for maestro Florentin Garcia. Later Alejandro became his apprentice and learned from him the secrets of plants.

The strangeness of these ceremonies can be seen as part of the ‘trappings’ of rituals in general. Strangeness serves to trick the rational mind so that it will not interfere with the subtle processes taking place in the subconscious. When we are fully awake, things can indeed seem strange… ‘people are strange, when you’re a stranger…’ as the song by The Doors goes. A part of healing is recovering the lost gift of perception, the feeling of being alive again.

Track 5 Mesa with Leopoldo Vilela who was also born near the celebrated Las Huaringas in Radiopampa, an extremely cold place at 3,500 meters altitude. He was 90 years old and in very good health at the time of this mesa which was also held in the ruins of Puruchucu. At three years old he was sent outside to look for herbs for his mother who was suffering from a stomach ache; there he knew he would become a curandero. He used to watch his father who was clairvoyant and assisted people in his community to find their animals when they were lost. He used tarot cards and looked into bottles of aguardiente (firewater) with grains of corn of different colours at the bottom

Don Leopoldo improvises sessions for groups and individuals, which may continue for hours. These are full of idiosyncrasy, and characterized by warmth, dedication and playfulness, which is quite touching at times. The seemingly endless sequence of bottles of tastes and smells and other procedures are often extremely weird while his inadvertent remarks and caresses on his guitar (of his own manufacture) often provoke smiles and laughter in all present.

Human beings have an instinctive awareness of other people’s conscious states of mind. When another person, a shaman, is authentic and spontaneously creative in the moment, this has the power to focus the mind, stopping it from verbalizing and rationalizing. A sense of pure wonder is evoked.

Track 6 Closing calls. The conch shells or pututus, still used in Andean communities today, are handed down from the Incas who obtained them from the Caribbean. They are used for convening meetings and ceremonies.

Tracks 7-9 Shipibo icaros of Mateus Castro, a shaman living outside Pucullpa in Yarinacocha. The arts of the Shipibo, especially textile designs, are closely related to ayahuasca icaros. The words of the chants are symbolic stories telling of the ability of nature to heal itself. For example the crystalline waters from a stream wash the unwell person, while coloured flowers attract the hummingbirds whose delicate wings fan healing energies etc. You might see such things in your visions but the essence which cures you is perhaps more likely to be the understanding of what is happening in your life, allowing inner feelings to unblock so that bitterness and anger con change to ecstasy and love. To awaken from the ‘illusion of being alive’ is to experience life itself.

Tracks 10-16 Dona Cotrina Valles was born in Agua Blanca, Department of San Martin. She apprenticed herself to a maestro in 1979 and later came to live in Iquitos with her husband. Today she lives alone with her children. It is very unusual for a woman to be a shaman in urban situations although they do exist amongst indigenous peoples. Amongst other limiting beliefs, it is thought that women break taboos as they are unable to take dieting seriously because of demands from their husbands and that when they go shopping in the market they will have contact with menstruating women or people who are mal dormida, (ie. a person who has been making love all night).

The diet is a vexed question in the city as the temptations of rich spicy food as well as sex are greater than in the rainforest. As all shamans will tell you, Dona too, says that sex is bad. The ‘mother plant’ loves you and if you make love to another person, you are being unfaithful to her. For this reason it is often said that Ayahuasca is jealous, and if you do not respect her, she makes you ill instead of healing you. You will also not be able to see any visions. The ill effects from not respecting the diet are called cutipa and range from a sense of trauma and stress to skin problems.

Dona’s chants are sung in Spanish and Quechua, as also are the chants of Javier Arevalo which follow. Both Dona and Javier are mestizo shamans, that is to say their ancestors moved to the Amazon from the Andes, rather than being indigenous to the Amazon as the Shipibo are. The melodies of mestizo icaros have an Andean structure and are sung partly in Quechua, a language of the Andes.

Track 17Despacho to Pachamama in the ruins of Pisaq. A despacho is an offering to the Earth Goddess, Pachamama, which nurtures all life on earth. The ceremony symbolizes the reciprocity of nature and speaks back to her saying ‘we understand the message and we have the same attitude’. The word despacho was mistakenly translated into Spanish after the Conquest as pago, meaning payment, to imply a satanic pact with dark forces.

As each participant made their contribution to the despacho convened by the Shamaness Doris Rivera Lenz ‘La Gringa’, Kike Pinto, played pre-Colombian instruments. The first piece is a Harawi from the Department of Cusco played on a quena, or notch flute, made from the wing bone of a condor. This little melody has been handed down from Inca times, thanks to its incorporation into Catholic mass in Colonial times. The second piece is a Haylli from San Pedro de Castas, Department of Lima, played on a ch’iriqway, or antara (panpipes), made from condor feathers. The melody also has pre-Hispanic roots and has survived in a form played on the chirisuya, kind of oboe, of probable Moorish origin. This track is ended with some calls on the putu, or conch shell.

Kike Pinto is a lifetime musician and researcher of traditional Andean music. He has recorded several CDs and is curator of his own Museum of Andean Music in Hatunrumiyoq, Cusco.

Tracks 18-26 Javier Arevalo comes from Nuevo Progreso, a community of 50 families on the Rio Napo. Many generations of his family before him were shamans and already at 17 years old he knew this was his future. However when he was 20 his father died from a virote (poisoned dart in the spiritual world), sent by a jealous and malicious brujo (sorcerer) in his community. Soon after he began his two-year retreat in the rainforest with his maestro grandfather, dieting many plants, later to become his ‘doctors’. During his time in the wilderness he realised that it was better to leave God to punish the brujo who killed his father, and he decided to be a healer not a sorcerer.

There are several different kinds of icaros, at the beginning of the session. Their purpose is to provoke the mareacion or effects, and, in the words of Javier, ‘to render the mind susceptible for visions to penetrate, then the curtains can open for the start of the theatre’. Other Icaros call the spirit of Ayahuasca to open visions ‘as though exposing the optic nerve to light’. Alternatively, if the visions are too strong, the same spirit can be made to fly away in order to bring the person back to normality.

There are icaros for calling the ‘doctors’, or plant spirits, for healing, while other icaros call animal spirits, which protect and rid patients of spells. Healing icaros may be for specific conditions like manchare which a child may suffer when it gets a fright. The spirit of a child is not so fixed in its body as that of an adult, therefore a small fall can easily cause it to fly. Manchare is a common reason for taking children to ayahuasca sessions.

Tracks 18 Llamada de mareacion in which the spirits of various healing plants are called, here the huacapurana, a tall tree with hard wood, whose bark is used for arthritis. Huacapurana is also used as an arcana, or spirit to protect the body. Also the remocaspi whose bark is used to reduce fever and cure malaria.

Marriage Advice:

I want a Woman like Shakira should I then Migrate to Colombia?

I am very obsessed with Shakira and now I want myself a Colombian woman like her.

I am wondering if in Colombia if many of the women are hot, sexy, beautiful, educated, young, smart.

Or is Colombia a dangerous place or something?

Or perhaps I should Migrate to Florida I hear there plenty latinos in Florida.

Where can I find a woman like Shakira?
I also seem to be very interested in the Colombian people aswell.

However I am afraid I will not like the place. I am running from the caribbean cause I am tired of seeing garbage, slums and poverty.

And as such I am not sure if Colombia is the place cause as we all know Shakira no longer lives in Colombia she lives Bahamas and Miami.

Does Colombia look anything like USA?
Maby I should just head Florida then?

Colombia has many beautiful women. Cali, to me, has especially beautiful ones. As for Shakira, too bad. There is only one and she is from Barranquilla -not especially noted for gorgeous women. Colombia is a great place – and there is poverty so if that bugs you, dont go. There are huge communities of Colombians in New York and Miami. Go there instead.

SUGABABZ ” The Columbian Bombshell”

columbian wife left husband right after she received green card!what to do now?

so a friend of mine got married thru a K-1 visa with a Columbian girl in may …..got married within 90 days ,did all the paper work ,by November she kept on looking for arguements and drama in order to leave the house and bla bla …..anyhow she just received her conditional green card and he called her and gave it to her ,right after that she bounced out for real ……
what can he do now ,,,besides crying after her(he didnt get it ,that she was a green card digger )
basicly he was married for 6 month because she was always gone …

i know she is shady and threats him telling him she will call the cops on him if he calles her and tell them he abused her and other BS .which is not real .

That’s what happens to people who don’t get to know the people they marry BEFORE they marry them. I suggest he call the INS. He’s isn’t the first story like this they’ve heard. They might be able to do something to help him. Maybe. If not, I hope learns from this experience.

Dating Latina Women – Secret Tips

If you are a “gringo” captivated by the beauty and vivacious nature of latina women there are some things that you’ll need to learn to succeed with these beautiful, mysterious women.

First, it isn’t necessary for you to be fluent with your “espanol”.  As long as you can say a few words, such as “gracias”, “como estas?” and “eres muy guapa” (you are really cute) to her, then most latina women will find this very endearing and be intrigued with you.

Just by the fact that you have said something to her in her language, you don’t need to worry about coming up with a clever opening line to start a conversation.  9 times out of 10 she will ask you how you learned to speak spanish (and only if you speak 2 or 3 words in reality, but she doesn’t know this yet).  She will probably offer to teach you more spanish if you ask.  So the conversation has already begun, without the need to use a corny pick up line on her.

If you still need help with finding something to talk about, then ask her about her favorite food from her own country.  Women love to talk about food, especially latin american women.  You might actually be sorry you asked, because she might go on and on about food from her country.  That is when you should ask her the next question, which is obvious: if there are any good restaurants in town that serve food from her country, whether it be Mexican, Cuban, Colombian, etc. and ask if she wants to go there for dinner with you sometime. Very few latinas will turn you down if you approach them this way, unless you come on too strong or they already have a man.

On the date, it’s important for you to know that it’s not a good idea to come on too strong with a latina, with these women it’s better to take it slower than you would with a “gringa”.  Latin women are very concerned with being respected and not being used, due to the “machista” attitude of many men in their own countries.

Use this to your advantage because as a “gringo” she will think you are more respectful and honorable.  Take it slow with her at first, and believe me, you will be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams later.

I will be writing another article on this topic soon, but if you need more advice now, or just want to say hello,  just drop me a line at my e-mail.

Made In Italy, Beach Fashion 2009

 

As all real fashion victims know very well, all fashion houses are already announcing new trends for next summer beach fashion and many fashion designers have already presented their new collections.

Nowadays to be fashionable on the beach a plain swimsuit is in no way enough, every year catalogues renew themselves and it’s very important to be always updated. In the last years beach accessories have also taken much importance, as flip-flops, beach towels, but also bracelets and necklaces, and the sarong will still play the lead in beach fashion.

This year beach fashion will also be based on Colombian style, so bikini will be again (but when it was not?) the more fashionable swimsuit. Bright colors, see-through sarongs, and south American patterns: really a wonderful collection.

After winter, also in summer purple and all its nuances will be the most fashionable colors, and then also micro and maxi patterns, safari or jungle prints.

In the bikinis, panties will be bigger, with no or almost no bows. Triangle shaped and push-up bras of course will play the leading role. Around the world of bikini or one-piece swimsuit, which is made with less and less cloth and that now exposes most parts of the body, you can find all beach accessories. Gossamer-like caftans made of chiffon or cotton muslins, hot pants and sarongs.

Beach bags are of great importance, made of canvas or straw, but always enriched by embroidery and appliquéd flowers, rigorously handmade crochet style and rigorously color-matching with the swimsuit.

It’s clear now that you can’t go to the beach just with a traditional swimsuit, but the beach has also become an important runaway for who always want to be cutting-edge style. Besides sarongs and caftans, tracksuits, hot pants and soft chenille pants absolutely don’t have to miss in your bag. Also toweling accessories have appeared: beach towels, ponchos, beach robe with inlays, with ruches. There are really a lot of alternatives, for all tastes and for every kind of body.

About shoes, ballerinas and flip-flops, made of toweling too, still are really ruling the roost, of every different color but always color-matching with the swimsuit or the sarong.

Given that bikini or at least two-piece are spreading everywhere, one-piece also adapt itself and leave uncovered more and more body parts. Plain color swimsuit almost gives way to prints, French lace inserts, some swimsuit are even full covered with myriads of hand sewed prismatic precious stones.

A necessary accessory in your bag is definitely sun cream, there are any kind of sun creams with any level of protection, the most important thing is that your skin have to be always hydrated and you don’t get a sunburn, so in the first days is better to use a bit higher level of protection or you will have to change all your clothes to match with your purple-red skin. It is always better not to overuse of sunbathe, skin is much more fashionable if it is healthy and hydrated even if a bit less tanned.

If you want at all costs an astonishing tan, an always actual trend are sunlamps to do in the city some months before going on vacation. The sunlamps, but used in moderation, will prepare the skin to solar exposition, besides giving you a bit of tan.

After all this preparation, don’t forget to enjoy your holiday at the most, relaxing yourself and having fun as much as you can, after all summer is also all these things!

Marriage Advice:

Are these statues worth anything?

I found these two statue thingys in an antique store and I thought they were cool and wanted to know if they were real and how much they were worth.

Thanks for any info on these.

As to the pre-columbian sculpture : western Mexican culture is related to Colima, Jalisco e Nayarit. The oldest are called “Chinesco”.
Long heads and marked eyes figures (always holding something in the hands) in “terracota” are typical of burial cerimonies.
The 500b.C. to 800a.D. period of western Mexico history relates to Monte Albán in Oaxaca Valley (the Zapotecas).

Maybe you should try photos/information using these tags …

Good luck !

Foreign Bride Questions:

How would you choose where to get married?

Supposing we have a couple that lives in the States.The guy is Colombian and the girl Italian,but they both live in the US.How can they choose their wedding location?Should it be the bride’s country or the groom’s?Or maybe where they reside?

I’d go with where the couple lives.

While its not as dramatic as different countries, my fiance & I live in Pennsylvania, most of my family (mom & dad’s sides) live in New Jersey, about 3hrs away, and his mom’s family is also from New Jersey, about 2-3hrs away & in a different area from my family.
We chose to have our wedding where we live in Pennsylvania because it was more affordable, it was where we plan to start our married life together, it was easier to plan the whole thing since we lived in the area AND because it avoided any arguments about if we held the wedding near my family or his.
