about

My research on the mesoamerican
precolumbian cultures and especially with the musical instruments begun with my interest in the magical aspect of these cultures.
The magical side was hidden for a long time because of European catholic priest, they though that all the liturgical pre-Columbian practices were things of the devil. The great knowledge and religious practices as traditional medicine got at a very high level at that time. Teotihucan, Xochicalco, toltecs from Tula, and Acolhuacan Texcoco were some of the very highest as Totonaca from Tajin, Zapotec, and the many Maya cultures.

With this album I am trying to recreate some of this magic side of my ancestors. I found that the theme was so vast to try to cover it in an album so I decided to work with one culture at a time.
I present the fist part of what could be a tetralogy (four music cd's). The first cultures I am working with are the Teotihuacan and Toltec.
Here I try to recreate their religious beliefs, their divinities,their sacred calendar, the first couple, the water and earth cult, the duality.
Original mesoamerican musical instruments were used from Teotihucan, the Gulf of Mexico, Guerrero and Maya cultures.
Also I used for the first time functional replicas of quadruple flutes found in Teotihucan and the Maya zone and triple flutes.
