Huitzilopochtli Inkuik Chants Cenyotl
You are invited to join us in our next Nahuatl Chants Cenyotl beginning Tuesday Nov 8, a 7 week deep dive focusing on the chant Huitzilopochtli Inkuik
a chant to honor Huitzilopochtli, as well as the Huitzillin Sun, the Winter Solstice & the essence of will power & community
Nov 8 to Dec 20 (total of 7 sessions)
Because of this new framework for the chants classes that we've been implementing this is a great entry point for new students to join and get the background and context around the nahuatl cantos and understand how crucial they were and are to everything from daily life to rituals…
In fact there are many ancient rituals where there was no danza (what today is the preferred form of ofrendas) but there was ALWAYS wind offerings in the form of chants… that is how powerful this form of ofrenda is yet it continues to be largely overlooked by many…
So this course is for those of you who’ve wanted to learn beginners chants in nahuatl and who want to learn both their literal translations as well as metaphorical symbolism and who want to understand when and how different ancestral nahua chants can be used.
Each Cenyotl will focus on only 1 chant at a time so that we can really embrace the meaning and essence of the chant.
During this next Cenyotl we will be diving into Huitzilopochtli Inkuik, a chant used for ofrendas Huitzilopochtli and the ceremonies dedicated to this important ancestral concept, including the upcoming Winter Solstice ceremony…
Keep in mind that this isn't a theoretical or intellectual class, we will all be taking turns singing during class :) so students will be expected to sing with camera and microphone on along with their fellow students during the live classes. This class is therefore especially good for folks with musical backgrounds, for folks who enjoy offering up cantos as offerings, or who won't be too shy to sing live in the course.
Being present in class is strongly encouraged to help with pronunciation & rhythm
We will have a limited number of spaces available for this Cenyotl to create a safe container for sharing our voices so if you are interested in joining register as soon as possible.
