Jomshuk. Niño y dios maíz.


Click the button below to add the Jomshuk. Niño y dios maíz. to your wish list.



There are many versions of the fascinating myth of Jomshuk, the god of corn and a mischievous child who escapes death and overcomes a thousand dangers with the help of animals.

This unusual illustrated poem tells the version that the author heard in the voice of his brother and other members of the Popoluca community of Piedra Labrada, in the jungle of Veracruz (México).

It is a story of oral, polyphonic and syncretic tradition: there are some European references, of evil witches, and others of Mesoamerican rituals, with snakes and opossums.

Each reader can add their own music note when they count it.
