• Our Mission: The trees, the wildlife, and importantly those who call the rainforest "Home". To document the music, song and traditions of indigenous Indians in the Peruvian jungle. To share our music and to learn from theirs. Allowing music, song and dance to give a voice to the children of the forest directly to the world.

Music as the true international language

"Conservation is an activity but also a mind-set. We believe it is important to set aside, protect, and ensure the long-term viability of representative areas in the Amazon so that we AND the people of the Amazon can continue to learn about, benefit from, be inspired by, and enjoy the plants, animals, and habitats that those areas contain. We also believe that each of us as individuals, families, organizations, corporations and governments can and should find ways to conserve our planet by reducing unnecessary use, cutting down on waste, and making more efficient use of renewable resources. We owe this to future generations."

Our music adventure begins in Chachapoyas, Peru, with a backdrop of ancient ruins & high-jungle mysteries, a land of "Warriors of the Clouds". Our quest, to follow the footsteps of 16th-century conquistador Don Lope de Aguirre on his "Wrath of God" expedition down the Andes Mountains to the Amazon River.
Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

Our "Eldorado" being the culture & music with impromptu gigs for children at school, with local musicians in parks and clubs; we use a universal language, Music Song & Dance, a Come Together of cultures.

Rumble Inca Jungle Highlights:
350km/212mi road trip this day from Chiclayo to Chachapoyas up into the Andes Mountains • jam with local musicians & children at each stop of our journey • Land of the Cloud People The Pre-Columbian Chachapoyas culture has left a landscape scattered with villages and burial sites which until recently has been largely overlooked by archaeologists. The winding rivers and creek beds carve the terrain, headwaters of fuel for the mighty Amazon River. The few and far between roads and paths scar a landscape where ancient civilizations arose and fell. Remote and oasitic stone ruins hide beneath the bromeliads. A journey to Chachapoyas, Land of Cloud Peoples, and mysteries marked deep in a lost civilization that cries for discovery • High in the cloud forest the largest stone ruin site in the New World awaits: Kuelap, perched majestically on mountain-top cliffs overlooking the verdant Andean landscape • trek to the Sarcophagus of Karajia; Here we will find 3-meter anthropomorphic wooden coffins located under a cliff. Mummies were placed inside each coffin • Gocta Waterfall; 2,530 feet high. Prior to 2004 the waterfall has rarely been seen by anyone, due to its remote location. Legends that it is haunted by a mystical siren have kept the native population at bay for hundreds of years • Tarapoto and the village of Lamas to jam with the Chancas Indians at the medieval castle of Lamas • Flight to Iquitos: Iquitos is a Peruvian port city on the Amazon River and gateway to the jungle lodges and tribal villages of the northern Amazon. • Music gigs with local musicians

River trip to the Amazon Refuge Wildlife Conservation Center: • The home of the San Juan de Yanayacu Indians is on the Yanayacu de Yacapana River, a tributary of The Peruvian Amazon River. The community of 200-Indians, 125 of which are children, help protect their rainforest home, one of the most biologically diverse places on earth with more species of mammal than any other place on Earth • Jaguars, caimans, a myriad of monkeys, birds, jungle sounds.
