 Xavier Vignolo

 The instrument is called kenacho and is used

in eremonies and shaman rituals in Ecuador,

it s very special because it helps you meditate and feel the absence of time.

I learned since teenager to play guitar, and bass guitar,

in different styles, blues, jazz, bossa-nova, folk, etc,

but  it was when I heard the winds played in the jungle

during a special ceremony that I became very passionate

about them and taught myself how to play them.

My dream is to be able to make a fusion of the sound

heard in remote areas of Ecuador with contemporary music

and show it to the world.
