His Mother was one of his primary teachers, Adela Navas. Jose has been a practicing 'ayahuasquero-shaman' for 23 years now and has an incredible reputation as having one of the finest singing voices such that the icaros he sings and whistles during ceremony are some of the finest icaros you will ever hear. He lives in Iquitos with his 11 year old son, Andre, and is the resident Shaman at the Ayahuasca Medicine House, a healing center outside of Iquitos, Peru.
