Colors of Peru

Aktualisiert: 31. Juli 2019

We have probably never met a person more lively and friendly than him: Skating acrobat and tireless graffiti writer DIEGO from Peru. Honoring his ambition to spread the word about his home country (as you will hear in the interview below) this blog post will not draw on Khalil Gibran's poetry but on traditional Inca verses.


The Sacred Hymns 2: Prayer that the people may multiply
Creator
Lord of the Lake,
Wiracocha provider,
industrious Wiracocha
in shining clothes:
Let man live well,
let woman live well,
let the peoples multiply,
live blessed and prosperous lives.
Preserve what you have infused with life
for ages without end,
hold it in your hand.
( The hymns of Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui, composed for the Situa ceremony around 1440-1450, taken from: www.red-coral.net )

Even before the actual Meeting of Styles event we saw Diego mainly doing one thing: writing! Here you see him in the backyard at Manuel Gerulli's event location Kontext - practising his craft.


Find out about Diego's motivation to write in this short video:


The Sacred Hymns 3: To all the spirits of places
Creator, end of all things
root of all
Lord of the Lake
active diligent Wiracocha,
Lord of Mountains
Lord of Prayers
Lord of Rituals
Lord without measure,
Creator, end of all,
who rewards and grants:
Let the communities and people prosper
and also those who journey outside or within.
( The hymns of Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui, composed for the Situa ceremony around 1440-1450, taken from: www.red-coral.net )
