Songs of the Forest is a documentary about Mawaca’s tour through Amazonia.
In August 2011 the musicians of MAWACA met six different indigenous peoples: Paiter Suruí, Karitiana and Ikolen Gavião from Rondônia; Kambeba and Comunidade Bayaroá from Amazonas and Kaxinawa-Huni-Kuin from Acre.
On one day, they had workshops, playing and singing together and, on the following day, they performed together, on the same stage. A real musical gathering! This project is based in the album – Rupestres Sonoros that presents indigenous songs from different regions of Amazonia.
The album ranked the Top 5 of the World Music Charts Europe in August 2009 and has revealed an “inner” Brazil that is undiscovered to most people. Submitted for IMZ World Music Film Screening at WOMEX 2012
