Ül Kimvn (Ode to Knowledge) is the soundtrack of Kimvn Teatro, whose hallmark is tackling the Mapuche world view and culture through documentary theater. This acoustic concert is a musical journey through memory, identity, native inheritance and the world of music that they have created in their theater productions Ñi pu Tremen, Territorio descuajado, Galvarino, Ñuke and Ñiami Tañi Pixán (Their Soul Disappeared), plus a preview of Trewa, their latest creation. These plays are part of a career spanning 10 years, with music written and conducted by Evelyn González Seguel, the company’s co-founder. The music moves from interculturality - combining Mapuche music and the Mapuzungun language - to the sounds made by Latin American and classical instruments. Ül Kimvn emerged in 2018 as a musical project that’s independent from and complementary to the company itself, the result of the need to give the instrumental music and songs created for its productions a life of their own.
