Fernando is an indigenous artist from the Shipibo community. His indigenous tribe lives in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru. He designs and hand carves gourd rattles with unique designs and patterns. The Shipibo see and hear the geometric patterns in nature and reproduce the designs featured on his instruments. The Shipibo believe the patterns are healing on the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical level. Each design carries its own special meaning and functions as a musical score called an ‘Icaro’ that can be sung. Fernando’s one-of-a-kind instruments are designed and hard carved using local resources.
