Paula López was the greatest indigenous singer in El Salvador. She belonged to the Nahua people, and dedicated her life to teaching their language, Nawat, through the songs she created. Thanks to the Ne nawat shuchikisa project hundreds of young people and children had the opportunity to meet her and learn her songs. In this ColecciónTakwika we are respectfully offering the songs of the Nahuat-speakers and neo-speakers of El Salvador.

The song Ne pashaluani has been sung by children, youth and adult choirs of El Salvador thanks to the work of the Spanish composer Sonia Megías, supported by institutions such as the Spanish Cooperation, the Ministry of Culture of El Salvador or the Government of San Salvador. This collaboration with the indigenous people of El Salvador helps to disseminate the music that they create today for the revitalization of the Nawat language. With the contribution of projects like this, the Nawat language of El Salvador is no longer in danger of extinction.

The covers of this ColecciónTakwika of songs in Nawat are courtesy of Salvadoran designer Carlos Miranda. The Nawat texts have all been revised by Nawat specialist Rubén Alvaguer.

Funds raised from the sale of the scores go directly to the Tuyulu Takwika (our heart sings) space for the dissemination and protection of music in Nawat, directed by the young indigenous leader Estela Patriz.
