Chief Biraci, the esteemed leader of the Yawanawa tribe, imparts 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 traverse the river on the very, very large alligator. Today, Kanarô holds special significance for us—a song that embodies both great joy and deep longing."
