Tito La Rosa Bio:

Tito La Rosa, a descendent of Quechua Indians of the Peruvian Andes, has for more than a decade, has been recovering and preserving, studying, and intuiting the ancestral music of Peru.

La Rosa was asked by the Peruvian Institute of Culture to play 2,000-year-old instruments at the Museum of the Lord of Sipan to reinvent the sounds these instruments made. In recreating the sounds of this culture that had disappeared into time, La Rosa stated “Time, like death, is a lie.”

Experimenting with the sounds of these 2000-year-old musical instruments, speaking with the archeologists, listening to the sounds of the wind and the murmuring of the birds when flying, La Rosa was deeply moved by this acoustical and magical mochican world, resulting in new “ancient” compositions.

Featured guest artist on New Age superstar Kitaro’s 2001 Grammy-winning CD “Thinking of You,” La Rosa has toured with Kitaro in Japan. Kitaro has said of La Rosa, “His attraction to the Spirit dimension and his love of all things from the natural world allow him to traverse musical landscapes with tranquility and deep passion.” La Rosa has also recorded with Mary Youngblood on his Silver Wave record label (www.SilverWave.com), of which BILLBOARD Magazine says: “La Rosa and Youngblood interweave North and South American winds like smoke..” La Rosa’s 2002 CD, “The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor” was nominated for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music Recording.

Tito is also a Curandero de Sonido, a Shaman of Music. When performing ritual and ceremony for healing, he enters into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates the frequency of an individual and allows for healing and balance to occur.

La Rosa was a main presenter at the International Conference on Traditional Instruments in Contemporary Music, sponsored by the French Government. He also took part in “Heart and Hands: Musical Instrument Makers of America,” a Smithsonian traveling exhibit.
