Maestro Adriano Rodriguez Raimundo (NIWEN RAWA ) is 49 years old and his family comes from the Shipibo community of Pouyan. He has been studying as a maestro for 41 years. Adriano's father served him his first cup of Ayahuasca when he was 8 years old. This opened up his path of studying the plants through traditional dieta, and at the age of 15 he began healing people. Out of all of his brothers and sisters, Niwen Rawa is the sole heir of generations of his families knowledge of the plants which he now carries forward with great mastery. His main diets have been with palos (trees), but he has dieted and received the teachings of a very extensive range of other plants. He is the father of 5 sons and very dedicated to sharing his knowledge and continuing his journey as a maestro. He gives a 100% and it is a real blessing for us to have the opportunity to work with a maestro who has been connected with the plants for nearly his entire life.
The icaros on this album were recorded in a very intimate setting within the Sacred Valley Sounds recording studio in the Sacred Valley of the Andes, Peru, captured during Ayahuasca ceremonies as part of a traditional dieta with the master plant Coca. It's very rare that icaros are recorded in this kind of space, with medicine, and during ceremony. Maestro Niwen Rawa and the SVS family are very happy to share these healing songs and the energy they transmit in hopes that they will connect people to this powerful and ancient healing tradition.
Proceeds from all sales will go directly to supporting his family and his work and a small percentage will help to support future projects through Sacred Valley Sounds. We truly thank you for your support!
