Yanomami shaman struggle against xawara – the smoke of epidemics – art installation with sounds of many Yanomami shaman chanting to protect the community!
The Yanomami shaman who fight the xawara epidemic diseases see their image appear in the form of strips of scarlet fabric.
They chant – Oru a wakëxi – the gold smoke: « The xawara epidemic is approaching and its smoke is glowing red! It is making the sky become ghost and is devouring all the human beings in its path! It must be driven away! »
Chants by Yanomami shaman, Alto Orinoco, Amazonas, Venezuela
