Music has long been recognized as the universal language, a method of communicating one’s emotions and experiences that spans across borders and language barriers. It can convey deep, complex emotions, connecting us all in a profound way.
Combine this incredible ability to express even the most elaborate emotions with the incredible global reach of social media, connecting over 3 billion people around the world, and it is no wonder that artists are able to make a major impact on the world around us.
This is what Alexandro Querevalu, an Amerindian performer has set out to accomplish. Using traditional music and instruments, his performances are reflective of a native culture that is often overlooked and underappreciated. An incredibly talented performer, Querevalu plays a wide variety of wind instruments including the Antara, Malta Zampona, Quena, Basto Zampona, and Quenacho. Adding further to the experience, he performs in different Native American costumes. In that moment, he takes you to another world.
Born in Lima, Peru, Alexandro Querevalu was the oldest son of his family, and at the age of 18 he took on the responsibility to help provide for his family financially. In order to do so, he emigrated to Poland. It is here, in Poland, that Querevalu performs live on the promenade in Swinoujscie, sharing his gift of music with all who wish to take it in. These performances are often recorded and shared across social media, reaching the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Arab countries.
Querevalu takes traditional songs, including The Last of the Mohicans, El Condor Pasa, and more, and performs them in a way that he believes will unite the hearts of humanity, regardless of race, religion, nationality or culture. His goal is to perform in a way that will reach the soul.
