Icaros, or ikaros, are songs that are interpreted as an accompaniment to healing ceremonies with sacred plants. They are musical prayers that embody the powers of the spirits of plants and animals, deities, ancestors and elemental forces. Channeled into this reality by healers, they are used as effective healing agents, powerful spiritual tools, or creators of ineffable kingdoms.

Each icaro is unique, responding to certain techniques of interpretation, singing, voice emission and breathing, as well as certain rhythmic patterns, musical scales, formal structures, and poetic themes, to guarantee real compliance with its harmonizing and healing purpose.

Darío Poletti is a musician and composer born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In his workshops, he shares knowledge and experience that he has gathered over 25 years of contributing his own music and accompanying the work of various facilitators in the ceremonial context of Master Plants. Maestros include: Emerson Jackson (Navajo Nation), Alonso del Río (Peru), Sacha Domenech (Argentina ), among others. Much of his inspiration comes from the work of retreats and diets carried out in the hills of the Argentine Northwest. In the ceremonial context, in addition to his own singing, he uses a multiplicity of sounds from different parts of the world including: kalimbas, sikus, African udu, charango, ronroco, and native flutes. His singing includes his own compositions and also innumerable traditional ikaros used in the Amazon jungle. Dario's music can easily be found wherever you listen online.
