Before this week ends, and since we are all in quarantine (almost everyone, there are exceptions); check my latest Episode 130: Joel Maripil, música mapuche, in Spanish. https://us.ivoox.com/es/48859133
Not every day we have the opportunity of getting to know all about this fascinating Amerindian Nation. I had the opportunity of getting to know more about Joel as a musician, as a Werken (is the mouthpiece of a community; it is the Mapudungun -mapuche language- word for “messenger”—one who bears the word), the music instruments he uses for his performance, its meanings, and his opinion on those genres that are influencing Mapuche’s music.
In another post, I will share a few of the instruments that we talked in this episode.
