'Arka was composed with Esteban Valdivia, musician, composer and neighbor. His tremendous work keeping Andean music alive, through his own interpretation, has been a great inspiration for me this year. He converges with my contemporary music ideas in which experimentation, harmonic clashes and dissonance are key factors. Performing under altered states of consciousness (or seeking them out through performance) helps create a clear connection between the terrestrial and the transcendental, delivering the body as a means at the service of the music. Arka alludes to fire, a dual ritual that represents once again the practice of the ‘siku’, a dialogue between the ‘Ira’ and the ‘Arka’, two parts that make up the same musical instrument.'
- Nicola Cruz
Arka was recorded in the caves of the Ilaló volcano in August.
