Engelram Super gorgeous and straightfoward afro-american music. Why would you need instrumental melodies when you have voices like that? I caught myself humming the refrain of La Plegaria everywhere. Favorite track: La Plegaria.

For the Baruya people of Papua New Guinea, the tsimia is the great ceremonial house. It represents the symbolic body of the tribe. In the center, the pillar structure which this building is called "grandfather". Home of all men from all the villages, all the lineages at a time, mixing all the clans, the tsimia materialize their unity. At its peak planted four or five pieces of wood carved pointing in the four directions of the sky. They are called "Nilamayé" flowers (Maye) rays (Nile). For the Baruya Sun supernatural deity is the father, the father of everyone without distinction of gender or social status. The sun is connected with all. He gave men the strength, the energy, the primordial fire.

Nilamayé is a group of Afro-Colombian music. His repertoire is inspired by music related to water seas and rivers that have been synonymous with life, joy and interbreeding. With fresh exuberance of his voices, the warm tones of marimba de chonta, deep sounds of cununos and bombos, the brightness of guasas and maracas and rhythmic exuberance of alegre drum. Nilamayé shares with listeners the "contagious joy" of the Colombian people.


Pour le peuple Baruya de la Papouasie Nouvelle-Guinée, la Tsimia est la grande maison cérémoniale. Elle représente le corps symbolique de la tribu. Au centre, le pilier qui structure cet édifice est appelé « grand-père ». Maison de tous les hommes de tous les villages, de tous les lignages à la fois, mélangeant tous les clans, la Tsimia matérialise leur unité. À son sommet sont plantés quatre ou cinq morceaux de bois taillés qui pointent dans les quatre directions du ciel. Ils sont appelés “Nilamayé”, les fleurs (mayé) du soleil (Nil). Pour les Baruya la divinité Soleil est le père surnaturel, le père de tout un chacun sans distinguer le sexe ni l’appartenance sociale. Le soleil est connecté avec tous. Il a donné aux hommes la force, l’énergie, le feu primordial.

Nilamayé est un groupe de musique afro-colombienne. Son répertoire est inspiré des musiques liées à l’eau de mers et de fleuves qui ont été synonymes de vie, joie et métissages. Avec la douce exubérance de ses voix, les tons chauds et enrobés du marimba de chonta, les sons profonds des cununos et des bombos, la brillance des guasas et des maracas et l’exubérance rythmique du tambour alegre, Nilamayé partage avec les auditeurs, la « joie contagieuse » des peuples colombiens.
