Music of the Venezuelan Yekuana (Makiritare) Indians

"The Yekuana Indians, also known as Makiritare, whose total population is estimated at 1,500 to 2,000 persons, are the people whose life is closely related to the rivers as is suggested by their tribal name, which can be translated as ‘curiara (dugout canoa) people’ or ‘river people.’ When discovered around 1758-59 by the Spaniards, the Yekuana lived along several tributaries of the Upper Orinoco."

Walter Coppens and Isaías Rodríguez
