Huachipaire Eshuva Prayer (Peru)

Part of the Matheson Trust Sacred Audio Collection

The Huachipaire are an indigenous group speaking the Harakmbut language and living in Peru’s southern Amazon tropical forest. The Eshuva songs are learned directly from the forest’s animals, and are sung to summon nature spirits to help to alleviate illness or promote well-being. These chants are “like the will, patience and faith”, for protection in different levels, “by day and by night.”
