├ünent: Music and Ceremony from the Shuar, Headshrinkers of the Amazon
Recorded entirely on location in the Amazon
├ünent is sung as a prayer or meditation with a specific purpose. It represents the embodiment of a deep connection with nature and the spirits to fulfill a soulfully felt intention. There are no words in English or Spanish that can adequately translate the meaning. Therefore, it is important to imagine a cultural shift into another world of reality, where all is One. It is a world that has always understood quantum thinking, has always connected with the spirits of the Universe, and knows that to sing ├ínent is to turn a dream into reality.
The Shuar are an indigenous tribe of the Amazon rain forest, renowned for their powerful shamans, vast knowledge of medicinal plants, and in earlier times, for being fierce headshrinkers. Although they were never conquered by the Spanish, they are now facing a battle much greater than ever before: how to preserve what remains of their sacred rain forest, along with their cultural integrity and indigenous wisdom.
It should be noted that about 10 years ago the Shuar shamans were given information from the spirits that the time had come to share their indigenous wisdom. It was the same message given to shamans throughout the world. All music and ceremony in this CD is a gift from the Shuar. They invite you to learn to connect with natureÔÇÖs wisdom, and celebrate with them as we join together in changing our dream into an earth honoring reality. All proceeds from ├ünent are donated to the Shuar.
