"Antawara" the symphonic poem embodies the essence of the Native South American Quechua word, antawara, representing and exalting the Sky and Clouds when the Sun rises and sets. This contemplative-like universal human experience, transcends ordinary consciousness, lifting us to a state of awareness, of presence, of belonging to the very unity of the universe. Mendoza-Nava’s “Antawara”, in a like manner, speaks to our primordial and spiritual connection with the sky, the wind, the movement of clouds, the passing storm, and the fierce grander of nature. He stirs the imagination and shakes the unconscious the way poets do with words, bringing together Western musical symphonic tradition with Andean rhythms, harmony and spirit.
