What do we propose?

Through this project we want to perform recording, mixing, mastering and release of our first album, called MUSKUY.

Who are we?

We live in the Ecuadorian Amazon. We are an intercultural group formed of young people of the Kichwa Nationality, with a distinct touch of Basque. In January 2013 we decided to form the group KAMBAK motivated by our gratitude with life and our disagreement with the unbalanced social, environmental and cultural situation we Amazonian peoples and the society in general.

We decided to call the group “KAMBAK”, which means "yours," or "for you" in Kichwa language, so that different originating nationalities identify with the music, with its history, with its territory...

Our goal is to strengthen the cultural identity of the peoples and nationalities of the Ecuadorian Amazon, which are at a disadvantage against the devastating globalization. Likewise, we combine our efforts to promote the defence of Sacha Mama (Mother Jungle) and the cultural richness that is here.

We tell you more...

Since the KAMBAK group was born, we have been present in every corner of the forest and Ecuadorian cities, carrying messages of hope and unity.

We have long been hoping to record an album, and through it, to get to the heart of communities and indigenous peoples. It is our desire; that is why we will name the album “MUSKUY” (Dream, in Kichwa). Similarly, it is our purpose to get our songs to the rest of the world, with the intention that the language of music will make visible the reality of the peoples of the Amazon.

How about the album?

MUSKUY tells the stories of our grandparents and sings the most beautiful melodies with scent from the jungle. The traditional rhythms take us back to our roots and remind us what we always were. The fusion with the rhythms and contemporary instruments also puts us in a current picture, because the album also makes reference to the present reality, changes and difficulties that the Amazon and its peoples are experiencing. MUSKUY hails the strong and wise woman of the jungle, to the love, to the spirit advocates of life, to the dreams and the warmth of the community.

What is our purpose?

We aim to be a benchmark for Nationalities and Indigenous peoples and minorities, especially in the Ecuadorian Amazon, where the indigenous music is disappearing towards the more commercial and vacuous music. This is why we consider the recording of MUSKUY to be fundamental.

The album recording of MUSKUY will be a first step for KAMBAK; the first step of a long way to go; a path with heart, which will reach young people, children and adults from all corners. This is just the beginning of a life purpose, which is to strengthen minority and disadvantaged people, so that together we can be the protagonists of the aid of a territory. All thanks to a dream, thanks to MUSKUY.
