Curawaka   Biography - Europe Tour 2021

International quintet Curawaka describe their unique sound as «sacred world music».
A respectful yet passionate way of connecting the new with the ancient, the open mind and searching heart with the spiritual and ritual. The quintet leads us on a journey through the soundscape of the natural world and its native indigenous cultures, invoking a deep memory of something meaningful and profound in most of us.

Curawaka has spent years living with, and learning from, indigenous tribes all over the globe. Vocalist Anna Bariyani sings in seven languages, including Hatcha Kuin, Yawanawa, Sami, Spanish, Portuguese, English and her mother tongue, Norwegian. Her songs celebrate and echo the voices of the peoples of the natural world, their spirituality and sacred practices.

Hailing from as far apart as Norway, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Brazil, Curawaka are - like their music - of the world. Geographical and musical backgrounds and differences challenge and expand their distinctive sound, allowing for contrasts and nuances. Musicians Tavo Vasquez, Alberto Arroyo, Gabriel Aisenman and Txai Fernando bring the groove, playfulness and passion that comes with their latin folk rhythms and traditions, weaving a vivid and playful tapestry for Bariyani to vocally embellish with her clear, strong and luminous voice.

Their debut album Call of the Wild (Nixi Music 2018) was an instant classic in the global medicine music community. Curawaka are currently working on their second full length album, named «Dreamtime», to be released towards the end of 2021. The first single is called «Shamboriri» and will be released in August.
