Sigo siendo/ Kachkaniraqmi (I Still Am)

An enthralling musical documentary exploring the diversity of Peruvian folk music from the indigenous peoples of the Amazon and Andes to the barrios of Lima. Kachkaniraqmi is a Quechua expression that means ‘I continue being, I still am’.  A tale divided in three parts – Ayacucho (the Andes), Amazonia (the jungle) and the Coast (Lima, the city) – where they continue to sing in their native language and preserve a unique way of playing their instruments. I Still Am captures the country’s most beautiful and distant locations without turning its back on some of its most pressing social and economic problems.
