Wayra – ” The Wind “
In Quechua, one of the traditional native languages of the Incan culture,Wayra is the word for Wind.
Since 1989, Jaime Rodriguez (Wayra) has enjoyed an extensive performance and recording career as the founder of the traditional Incan music bands Llaqtaymanta and Inca Pacha.
The exotic sounds of traditional Incan music can be dated back as many as five hundred years, representing one of the most well preserved forms of Native American culture.
Llaqtaymanta toured throughout Europe presenting the music of the Andes to appreciative audiences.
Adapting some western influences, Wayra came to the USA. and formed in 1997, Inca Pacha, a group blending the stories of the ancient culture of the Andes mountains with contemporary arrangements.
Inca Pacha’s two US releases (The World Of The Andes, and Spirit Winds) feature the traditional instruments of Wayra’s homeland, in the musical styles of carnival, cancion, tonada, and san juanito.
The enthusiasm generated by Wayra’s live performances throughout the United States and Canada has resulted in Wayra’s first solo release in 1998, “Wayra – A Collection of Contemporary and Native American Themes”, being Wayra the first musician from the Andes to record and combine the Native American Flutes of North América with the Pan Flutes, and flutes from the Andes as well as being the first musician from the Andes to record an instrumental versión of the song ” My Hearth Will Go On”, soundtrack of the movie ” Titanic”.
As a solo artist, Wayra is the consumate performer – vibrant and personable, his musical arrangements reflect his expertise and energy.
Traditional songs are given new life and contemporary songs acquire the timeless sensations of the mystical pan pipes, flute, and natural effects in all his musical productions.
Wayra, currently lives in his homeland and continues his artistic career from his recording studio.
