Among the Yawanawa, there exists a cherished and beloved saité, a form of storytelling through song, dedicated to Kanarô.

Yawanawa Kanarô meticulously adheres to the traditional Yawanawa recipe, which includes Tsunu ashes and natural tobacco. Kanarô, the yellow Arara, has long been revered as the messenger bird bridging the physical and astral realms.
The craftsman behind this Rapé is Shaneihu, the grandson of the renowned pajé Yawa and the son of Chief Biraci. Shaneihu embarked on the rigorous one-year Muka initiation diet, guided by his grandfather before his passing. This demanding spiritual journey bestows significant credibility upon those who complete it. Shaneihu is not only a dedicated practitioner but also a highly accomplished musician. He has recorded and produced the mesmerizing CD titled "Kanarô," available on Spotify for those who wish to listen. We highly recommend exploring this musical masterpiece.
Kanarô is a word deeply rooted in the Yawanawa language and culture. It defies a straightforward translation, as it embodies complex sentiments and emotions. It is a song that speaks of remembrance, of longing for loved ones, and of the oldest melodies within their civilization. Kanarô encapsulates the yearning of a person for their family and holds a unique place in the Yawanawa cultural heritage.
Chief Biraci, the leader of the Yawanawa tribe, shares his wisdom: "Kanarô is the yellow macaw, the sole bird that once crossed the vast river during a time when animals communicated. It carried messages from those who could not cross on the very, very large alligator. Today, Kanarô holds a special significance for us. It is a song that embodies both great joy and profound longing."
