Tito La Rosa
TITO LA ROSA is a descendant of Quechua Indians of the Peruvian Andes. For many years, he has been recovering and preserving, studying, and intuiting the ancestral music of Peru. He is also a Curandero de Sonido, a sound healer, who enters into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates, allowing for healing and balance to occur.
Ancient Andean wisdom teaches us that the earth was made while the creator sang, thus all beings are made of sound, rhythm, and harmony. Through his concerts, flower ceremonies, and music classes La Rosa helps reawaken our memories (memoria antigua), weaving sounds into frequencies that open the heart and encourage the spirit to soar.
La Rosa has recorded with Mary Youngblood on the Silver Wave record label. His 2002 CD, “The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor,” was nominated for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music Recording.
