Kachkaniraqmi is a common term in Quechua Chanka which is hugely expressive when someone wants to state that, they are still alive, they continue existing.
This film is a spectacular musical travel around the most unknown and remote Peru through the three great scenes that Peru is composed: Ayacucho (Andean zone), the Amazonia (jungle) and the Coast (Lima, the city). Their people still singing in their mother tongues, they’ve kept their unique way of play the guitar, the violin, the harp, the box drum, and a special way to tell the stories, to tell who they are. We´ve arrived to places where any camera has arrived yet. And we’ve registered incredible sounds and musicians from Andean and the Jungle that they have never recorded before. But “I still being” is so much. This is a story about characters and about a hidden country that fight to re-encounter to itself.
