Enrique Males: Ariningacaman

This is a music video I made for Ecuadorian singer Enrique Males' song Ariningacaman.

Enrique Males is from Otavalo and despite being a softly-spoken man face-to-face he has the most impressively deep and powerful voice when he sings. He specialises in traditional Andean folk sounds, typically played on pre-Hispanic wind instruments.

Ariningacaman is sung in Quechua and is a love song to Males' child. It was sung at my wedding in Cayambe after Lucy walked down the aisle.

The video is a montage of some of my favourite footage I filmed after nearly a year filming in Ecuador's rural communities. I made the video because I love the song and it didn't exist online - I would like more people to hear and appreciate Enrique Males' music. I hope you like it.
