Muisca music

The music of the Muisca was produced in a magic-religious sense; music was played during religious rituals where the Muisca people gathers to worship the Sun (Sué), the Moon (Chía) and other deities. The music served as hope for the guecha warriors and to relieve the pain of the dead.[1]

According to the Spanish chroniclers, the music of the Muisca was sad and monotonous.[2] The people could play music during events that took a full month to please their gods where they sang about the wars fought and begged the gods for victory in future wars. Everytime a war was fought, the Muisca danced and sang.[1]

Also during sowing and harvests in their agriculture, the people sang and danced continuously. While singing they removed the loose rocks of the farming fields. The sacrifices, sometimes human in character, were accompanied by music, dances and singing. Also when new caciques were installed as rulers of their territories music and dances were performed.[3]

When the Muisca were constructing their houses (bohíos), they sang and danced and moved the wood for their houses according to the rhythm of the music. They dressed up with golden diadems and drank a lot of chicha. During these rituals they were accompanied by their god of construction and drunkenness, Nencatacoa.[4]

Instruments

For their music the Muisca used mainly flutes, drums and fotutos; musical instruments made of shells or snails. They also used ocarinas.[3] The Muisca also used zampoñas[5] and rattling cups with a pebble inside[6] for their musical compositions.

Dance

The dances for the harvest and sowing periods of the Muisca calendar were performed with feathers and costumes representing bears, jaguars and other animals.[3] The dances performed when they were constructing their houses were mixed-gender; women and men danced holding hands.[4]
