“The Last of the Mohicans,” composed by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman for the film of the same name, is the signature tune of Alexandro Querevalu, who will give two concerts of the indigenous music of North America in Shenzhen this week.

The sentiments expressed in Querevalu’s interpretation of “The Last of the Mohicans” have a uniting effect on the hearts of people of all races, nations, religions and cultures. This is due to the unique way that he plays these instruments that are indigenous to both North America and South America. The versatility, eloquence, sadness and happiness that he expresses in his musical interpretations are felt deep within the soul, which is why he himself says, “This song makes me cry.”
Born in Lima, Peru, Querevalu emigrated to Poland at the age of 18. He dresses in various Native American outfits for his live performances. He has also been a contestant in a Polish talent show.
