Peia “Machi” from Four Great Winds

 

This song speaks of healing power and medicine of Woman, the Moon and the Earth Herself. “Machi” is a word that comes from the Mapuche people of Chile and Argentina. A Machi is a medicine woman and sometimes also refers to a medicine man. May the images here remind us all what a miracle this life is. May we see that though tender and vulnerable our Earth is wise and resilient beyond all measure. “Where there is Love there is Life ” and here there is a lot of Love. Blessed Be.

Lyrics:

Machi machi machi – ma
Machi machi machi – ma

Machi cura
Machi sana
Machi cántame una nana

Machi machi machi – ma
Machi machi machi – ma

Yo no lloro
Yo sólo canto
Con tu encanta
Pacha Mama
Madre Tierra

Translation:
Machi is curing
Machi is healing
Machi sings me a lullaby

I do not cry
I just sing
with your love
Pacha Mama
Mother Earth
