Don William & Nila Raja (PE)
Curandero / Shamanic healer / Medicine Musician / Artist / Visionary Painter
William Llerena Murayari is a Peruvian Curandero of the Cocama lineage. He grew up learning firsthand of the medicinal plants of the jungle through his father and grandfather, who were both Curanderos. From the age of 12, William was helping his father, SantiagoLlerena, who was primarily a Vegetelista, make remedies for people who were sick in his village. He also spent much time learning from his grandfather and first maestro, PedroMurayari, who held Dietas in his house where William would stay and assist. His grandmother, Ana Arimuya, was a Curandera and midwife, working alongside her husband and also specializing in healing for children. When he was older William also studied with other curanderos of the Mestizo and Cocama lineages, his main teacher and inspiration being the late Don Solon Tello.
Now he is a highly respected Curandero with over 30 years of experience working with plants and has had the opportunity to grow communities and bring healing to many people across the globe. He has a unique style, and is a clear channel for the medicine, working with much integrity, humility and compassion. His musical mastery and exquisite visionary paintings are true examples of his profound connection.
His wife Nila, who works alongside him is a true embodiment of the Divine Mother in all her forms and has the understanding, patience, and compassionate heart of an Abuelita. She has been said to embody the energy of Mother Earth in ceremony and is a clear conduit for the wisdom of celestial beings, who are summoned by the intricacies of her heavenly voice. She too has only studied in the Cocama lineage and has around 10 years of experience working in this capacity. Prior to her studies in Peru, her first Maestra was her grandmother Kanchan, who initiated her into her Indian heritage, teaching her the ways of kindness to all beings, the importance of prayer, and selfless service."
German Popov (NL)
Musician / Composer / Sound artist and researcher
German Popov is a musician-multi instrumentalist, composer, sound artist and researcher. Throughout all of his projects he works on establishing the lost contacts with sources and archetypes of modernity. Significant part of his research is dedicated to incorporating ethnographic and anthropological data into artistic activities. He has been involved in various musical and social events focused on the topic of Central Asia.
Under the stage name OMFO he published several musical works and soundtracks which reached a high degree of international popularity.
His current research is based on combining ancient art forms with novel techno-scientific pursuits and performative concepts.
The rich collection of musical instruments collected by him over the years of travels in Central Asia and the Far East has become one of his main objects of study. In recent years, German has used his skills in researching musical traditions and the acoustic qualities of traditional musical instruments to represent his own music and songs. Projecting his work on a vanished troubadour tradition, he seeks inspiration in using his rich experience in analyzing Central Asian cultures for personal expression. Being himself and at the same time not succumbing to the banal temptation of the globalization of musical traditions is not an easy task, but the work on finding a balance in this matter inspires him to create his own justification for his research as an opposition to purely scientific empiricism on the one hand, and superficial profanity on the other.
