(Cree Language Clean Land)

Formed in 1992 on the eve of the 500th anniversary of European invasion of Indigenous peoples of the Americas, Kanatan Aski was a name given by Playwrite Floyd Favel from Pound Maker Reserve Saskatchewan.

The Native and Andes fusion band is composed by band leader and founder Ecuadorian born Marcos Arcentales, Louis Maigua (Kichwa Nation) Otavalo, Ecuador, Fernando Hinojosa Otavalo, Ecuador, Antonio Maldonado (Kichwa Nation) Otavalo, Ecuador, Louis Abanto, Peru and Jason Burnstick (Cree) Alberta, Canada. Kanatan Aski became popular in the genre of World beat music throughout the 90's.

In 1993 with the successful release of the album “Condor Meets the Eagle” the band brought together First Nations artists from across Canada to fuse Indigenous music with the likes of Floyd Favel, Monique Mojica, Pura Fè and the Eagle Heart Singers. With a number two spot on their first video release on Much Music under the World Beat Category the popularity of Kanatan Aski reached its height with a Juno nominee which included a live performance for the prestigious awards televised to more then 3 million viewers around the world.

Andean Colours and Andean Universe sound recordings would soon follow with a North American tour. By 1998 the band reached sales of over 22,000 CD units independently without any distribution.

In 1996 the band was joined by Jason Burnstick (Cree Nation). His contribution to the band gave Kanatan Aski a leading edge in the explosion of World beat music. Accompanied by Jason’s blues riffs and other guitar solos his influence persuaded the band to expand in new horizons of musical fusion. Soon after Jair Machado would join the band and contribute his percussion and flute performance.

Near the end of the 90's, Kanatan Aski sold over 26,000 CD units independently surpassing many indie artists in the Canadian music industry by independent promotion.

Currently, the band is reforming itself by bringing together a 15 year music project of Indigenous voices from the Americas titled Indigenous World which features the return of Floyd Favel, Pura Fe special guests Sierra Noble, Murray Porter and Jason Burnstick.

Indigenous World is an album with profund musical detail and precision sound, sung to the natural melodies of Inuit Throat Singing, string quartet, brass horn ensemble and Andes flutes. The much-awaited album Indigenous World will enlighten their audience by performing a once in a life time concert with more then 20 musicians on stage.
