Young Indians Choir

Highlights , Intangible Cultural Heritage - Paraty


The Indians from Itaxim village, also known as "Paraty-Mirim", compose a choir of 20 children and adolescents who recover ancient musical culture of the Guarani tribe. Besides the voices, the group rescues forgotten instruments of their tradition, as "Angua Pu" drums, the rabeca (fiddle) and Tacua-Pú, a cane pace.

The spirits of the ancestors of the village are also evoked in mystical songs. The choir usually travels to make performances in Brazil and it also attended the Rio+20 conference of United Nations Organizations about sustainable development in 2012.
