Washe, since its inception, has worked in the rescue and repositioning
of the ancestral traditions of the indigenous peoples of Venezuela.
This research has been intellectually sponsored and supervised by a number
of renowned anthropologists, ethnomusicologists, writers, photographers, foundations, ministries and musicians in the academic areas.
Also, Washé himself has personal y lived through experiences with indigenous communities in Venezuela.

These experiences already cover much of the Venezuelan territory, working
from the east along the "Pemon" community, the northwest with the "Wayuu,
Yukpa and Barí" and south of Venezuela with a number of indigenous peoples
as Piaroa ( Wotjuja), Ye'kuana (Makiritare), Mapoyo (Wanai), Warekena,
Kurripaco, Jiwi, among others. The result: a new vision of Venezuelan
ancient sounds and the rescue of cultural wealth.
For a better experience.
All these ancient traditions are amalgamated with visual elements,
the quaintness of the original instruments and techniques that ambient ongoing sound episodes.
Uniting these worlds, the ancestral
and modern technology, Washé is able
to transmit sensory experiences close
to the ancestral essence of our Venezuelan indigenous peoples.
