In May 2019, I recorded an album at a Kogis' (Kagabas*) village, in the Sierra Nevada mountain of Santa Marta in Colombia. Kagabas are indigenous people who consider themselves to be the guardians of the Earth and are concerned by the modern world's attempts to destroy it. Singing is a staple feature of the Kagabas culture, it is considered as a way to connect with the environment. As there's no writing, music and singing are a way to pass memory, knowledge and awareness down through generations. As we exchanged prior to my visit and while I was there, the recording and sharing of these songs was a recurring topic and we agreed to have singing at the core of this musical project. I was welcomed to spend a week within their community to record this album. I spent most of the time there with the Máma of the village and his son Camilo, with help from Franz who has been working with the Kagabas for about 15 years now as part of the Native organization which he runs. This album combines songs, field recordings of the village and of its surrounding nature, as well as musical compositions I made in my studio. They liked the result and approved this album to be released. Fully aware of the responsibility the Kagabas have entrusted me with, I've decided to self release this album and will give all the benefits to the Nativa organization to support its fight for the replanting of trees and getting land back.
