This is a mythical-musical exploration of the Marubo, one of the several
native peoples on the adventitious border between Brazil and Peru,
southwestern Amazonia. Over ten years of fieldwork give rise to a portrait
of these peoples as they express themselves in, and are themselves the
expression of their saiti festivals and myth-chants. In their native
language, saiti designates a generic festival where myths occur in a
specific musical and choreographic form – the form that establishes the
origins of these peoples, those of their world and of all things therein.
