Initial Project to Support the Music of the Mbyá Guarani

Here is an introductory video on the music of the Mbyá Guarani indigenous living in Misiones province in northern Argentina.  This was part of a small fundraiser I organized so that we could build some new instruments in the communities of Katupyry and Andresito, near San Ignacio.   Thanks to everyone’s contributions we were able to build a new guitar (mbaraka), drum (anguapu), and three violins (rabe) – almost exclusively from materials found in the forest using very basic tools and a little glue.  The check out the instruments, watch more videos and find out more about the project, visit the project page here.
