Meet The Artist Behind The Masterpiece
Aiding in the preservation of our musical heritage is my family’s legacy. We have carefully crafted traditional instruments for generations.”
He is an expert at crafting traditional Peruvian musical instruments. This is a family legacy, inherited from his grandparents and relatives. Curiously, Benito never used this knowledge and innate talent as a young man. He spent his time at other jobs because times were tough and he needed an income.
Promoting handmade products
Empowering local artisans
Assuring quality checks at all levels
Every purchase supports NOVICA’s mission to spread happiness by celebrating exploration, empowering artists, and preserving global culture.
Whenever Benito has a large order or many orders to fill at the same time, he hires other craftspeople to help him. He especially likes to give work to those who are from his hometown of Puno – he likes to be able to share the income this work brings with others in his community.
Benito is entirely dependent upon Novica sales. The income derived from the sales of his musical instruments support him, his wife and his grandchildren. He also gives work to other artisans when he needs help to meet the demand for his work.
Moving On Up
As Benito’s sales have grown through Novica, he has been able to hire other artisans to help meet the demand for his handcrafted instruments. He has trained many of them in this traditional craft and prides himself on preserving this traditional Peruvian art form.
Now in his seventies, Benito lives with one of his children and their children. Their parents provide for their children’s food and clothing and Benito proudly pays for his grandchildren’s education, even though he often struggles to do so.
