Ninawa is a great shaman of the Huni Kuin people and a spiritual leader in the village of Novo Futuro on the Humanita River in Acre, Brazil. The title “Pai da Mata” means “Forest Father” and is a title of loving respect given to patriarchs of the Huni Kuin Peoples. Ninawa is known as the rockstar of the Amazon. His favorite motto, “só alegria” (only joy!), has been a celebrated expression while he has grown a following all around the world through his contagious joy & charisma.
It’s no surprise that the Huni Kuin people are extremely vibrant and joyful. Every single child in the village is musically inclined, with many talented youths who write songs and play different instruments. All of their music is in honor of spirits of the forest and the sacred plant medicines. As the children learn music, they strengthen their connection with the Huni Kuin culture and spirituality.
Music is a foundational pillar of the culture & path, and is said that the songs and chants come from the heart of the Earth and that they are, the original sound of creation. Join us on August 1st as we welcome Ninawa for a free live workshop where he”ll share with us about traditional medicine music, and how the music works as a healing tool, within traditional plant medicine ceremonies & beyond. He will also be blessing us with some live music which we are stoked about!

This was a fun class – I caught it live and am happy to have the replays. I love how we got the lyrics to the tunes and I will have to work on learning the guitar parts as well. It was really informative how Ninawa explained how the songs and the words themselves call upon specific spirits of healing. What a great opportunity to learn from a master of the actual tradition!
