This is the second part of the traditional tales leave by our ancestors before the invasion of western European people and the lose of our first identity. The Maya World was more complex than it seems. We think all the cultures who flourish in south eastern Mexico, Guatemala and central America were all the same, but there is mayor differences between Cultures like «Palenque » or «Quichen Itza» or other mayor cultures from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
Maybe the link between all these cultures was the influence of Olmec mother culture.
This Part is dedicated to the Sacred tales of the Maya Quiché the «Popol Vuh»I decide to work with this traditional tales because is one of the ancient works that came to us almost unmodified by Europeans.
A personal reason is that the Quiché Maya are from Toltec origin as revealed in the same book.
Finally because i believe there’s a unique tradition between the Quiché tradition and on of the center of Mexico. (one key came from Tikal and their Teotihuacan influence)The Popol vuh is a quite complex book. It contains many tales and put all of them into music, will be a titanic work, so i decide to put in music the most important characters of the tales and the key moments so they are in the same vain as the sorcerer’s tales.
It took me four years of research, creation of the musical instruments I found in clay and create the musical pieces with those instruments.
Many of those instruments I present here are never been used for musical purposes.(Mayan mono-cord, poly-spheric ocarinas from Guatemala, Mexico & El Salvador. )
All the instruments are functional replicas of instruments that are confined in museums, or private collections or like the quadruple flute from Belize just been discover.
My deepest wish is to recreate with this melodies a forgotten and mysterious world now forgotten for western folk but alive in the hart of all my brothers of the Mayab.
