Amazonian Music Festival

Jeremy Narby, author of the "Cosmic Serpent", works for the Swiss association Nouvelle Planète and helps out Indian tribes in Amazonia.

He reports that women from the Aguaruna tribe have recently organised their first music festival, because they wish to transmit their songs and dances. You can see glimpses of this event here, as it has been filmed at the tribe's request :

A CD should go out sometimes in 2008 in Switzerland.

That's a great idea. So many indigenous groups will lose their stories, music and so on with the advance of modern life, especially computers. If it isn't saved now it will be gone.
