Emerging Peoples

Amazon Music, Marubo Myths

By Guilherme Werlang da Fonseca Costa do Couto

This is a mythical-musical exploration of the Marubo, one of the several native peoples on the adventitious border between Brazil and Peru in southwestern Amazonia. Over ten years of fieldwork have given rise to a portrait of these peoples as they express themselves in, and are themselves the expression of, their saiti festivals and myth-chants. In their native language, saiti designates a generic festival where myths occur in a specific musical and choreographic form - the form that establishes the origins of these peoples, those of their world, and of all things therein.
