Mixe musician from Santa María Tlahuitoltepec, Mixe, Oaxaca. Around 1992 he undertook his musical training, specialising in the trumpet, in a community context at the Centre for Developing and Education in Mixe Culture (CECAM). He continued to work on his musical skills at the Puerto de Veracruz School of Art, as well as at the Ollin Yoliztli’s Vida y Movimiento Music School and, later, at the UNAM School of Music. In 2008 he founded the Kamaapyë Brass Quintet project with prominent musicians from Tlahuitoltepec, reinterpreting traditional Ayuujk music in a chamber music format. In 2012, he founded Kalok iiy / fandango ayuujk, which recreates Mixe music as a collective manifestation in urban contexts, bearing in mind that the power of fiesta unites; this group has played at festivals around Mexico. In 2014 he created the Kumantuk Xuxpë audiovisual project, a musical exploration that incorporates the oral tradition of the Mixe people, elements of traditional Mixe music in dialogue with electronic music and graphic arts. As a result of this exploration, Kumantuk Xuxpë produced its first, self-titled, album in 2019. Benjamín has collaborated on other musical and visual arts projects such as the Clorofila project, as part of which he has appeared at various national and European venues. Benjamín is also a promoter of intercultural musical exchange among different traditions and promotes the artistic manifestations of the Mixe people in Mexico City.
