Welcome dear friends once more to an imaginary journey into the Native culture through the enchantment of the Inca music. Because nature and earth are elements in our life and music is the rhythm of our hearts and minds. This collection of musical expressions is part of the ageless cycle of creation of new stories and traditions that belong to the personal experiences of all indigenous people regardless of their ancestry and draws upon the music of both the old and new world of inspiration, synthesis of diverse traditions of the "Americas".
The songs flow from us like a fountain that cannot be contained, a road that has no end, the force of the mountain, winds that breath our songs, The sweat of our ancestors, the stories that must be told, the music that must be played. We perform with pride and respect the traditions of the Indigenous cultures of the Americas dignity and love for our craft It's our destiny.
History is only a dream,
The future has not happened,
The present is changeable
There are melodies in our lives that mark us forever that once you hear them they stay in your mind, and they break any obstacle that the language, culture or generation may have. Since the decade of the sixties the world has lived in a popular urban globalization of music. The young people of South America and North America as well as the industrial countries have been raised with this kind of music, they all have the same dreams, and they all have heard the same sound of guitars and the same voices of the music. In regards of the different language the world has always wanted to be one, and it has been that way in part.
In our Indian villages have been some translators of popular music that have been raised hearing this tones, and they also have tried to have their own tradition. Spiritual Nation is recognition to this, that with their melodies have brought dreams and hopes to places never imagined. To those who open the doors for the young generation of popular authors. Spiritual Nation is a group of pioneers that mix rhythms and instruments. There are new ways of trying to play different voices of other to renovate our own. The songs are the same true, but the feelings are different.
In December of 2000, the members of Spiritual Nation founded in Chicago, USA, ODIPE (Organization for the Development of the Indigenous people of Ecuador) a non for profit and an independent organization. To develop and collaborate with projects that promotes art, culture.
To ensure the economical, social and cultural justices of the Indigenous peoples based on the principles of equality among the indigenous peoples and the people of the countries that surround them. To promote knowledge and traditional practices on the use, conservation, preservation and sustainable development of natural resources.
One of the main objectives of ODIPE will be to the creation in Ibarra, Ecuador, the Native village of the members, a Cultural Center dedicated to the New Generations where can we teach the traditional values and arts to the children and to encourage them to be proud of their cultural heritage. In a world of accelerating change, where values are eroding in a homogenous blur, what is worth preserving requires commitment and financial support. The commitment to preserve cultural traditions is by necessity an ongoing one. You financial support is great help for the objectives of the organization, but more important, it is an investment that will continue to reap benefits for generations to come.
