The Anaconda’s Song
Performance by Hoka (France)
presented on 24 September 2011 at Besançon (France)
An Initiation through the songs of the Shamans of the High Amazon, near the Equator. The Anaconda’s Song is a ritual of sound absorption around the taking of Ayahuasca, an entheogenic brew. It is akin to the transmission of knowledge and inner thoughts, in the establishment of a relation with the Serpent. No explicit link is made between the myth and the ritual; the listener must make his own way.
