Million Brazilians- Cult Music of Ajitz

AJITZ: a MAYAN word meaning shaman, healer, wizard, or holy man. When shamans were being murdered in the name of christianity during the Spanish Conquest of Guatemala, the AJITZ DISSAPEARED INTO THE JUNGLE CARRYING A DOLL IN HIS OWN IMAGE AND AN AXE. He eventually reemerged and is now evoked to banish evil spirits and provide devotees with spiritual protection.   Now the Million Brazilians share with you an all acoustic interpretation of the AJITZ consisting of a collage of hand drums, horns, unique percussion, shakers, machetes and a few surprises!
