About

Memnxi Kiwe is a musical group that arises from the need to impact the lives of women from a political point of view. Our group is made up of indigenous women from the Cauca region in the south of Colombia: from municipalities such as Caloto, Santander de Quilichao, Tierradentro, Jambaló, among others. We are a musical proposal with a political sense, which promotes the rights of all women and in particular the rights of indigenous women. With the lyrics of our songs we seek to impact the lives of women in the communities, highlighting the need to revitalize ancestral knowledge, promoting equitable and balanced relations of the place of women in society. Recognizing that it has been difficult for indigenous women to enter the world of music, because this role has generally been privileged for men.
