Is a musical work created from the fusion of different cultures, preparation processes, and philosophy of a Mexican art group.
The Wixarika* - guardians of the sacred lands of the Wirikuta Desert and carriers of an ancient tradition full of magic, art, and spirituality - are a corner stone of this fusion; * and through the musical ensemble **Niwetzika, they tell stories in their native language and playing native instruments about pilgrimages to their ceremonial centers.
Anawak, who has been known for collecting and disseminating native songs from Mexico and North America, now tells us - through its songs in Spanish – about its own vision and experiences regarding some parts of the Wixarika way.
Alejandro Colavita, a contemporary musician and academic composer, accompanies and weaves these stories through acoustic and electronic instruments as if he was building a bridge between the modern and the ancient world.
Wirikuta is the first out of five Wixarika ceremonial centers—the birthplace of Father Sun, where rain and peyote medicine are born from the footprints of Tamatsi Paritsika (white-tailed deer).
Walking to Wirikuta is the expression of an inner journey occurring while visiting the sacred points of the Wixarika world.
