In an interview by telephone from Las Vegas, Nevada, Kreimerman stressed that it is the Huichol exhibition "Symphony of Colors" in which in addition to Huichol objects will be exhibited tubas, guitars, pianos, trumpets, saxophones and clarinets, as well as the Huichol chair and community outfits.

"We need to make it clear to the people of the United States that Mexico beyond what is spoken, is art, culture, brotherhood, harmony and love, that is why with these instruments we send messages of love and light. When they tell me that if I help the community, I say the opposite, because they have helped me to understand the world in a different way through shamanic experiences ".

He acknowledged that he has been supporting the indigenous communities of Mexico for many years and this time the intention is to impact visitors to the McAllen Museum for six months during the exhibition and to cover anti-immigrant mouths.

Kreimerman said that there are other museums of the American Union interested in exhibiting "Symphony of colors", so he is already talking with some directors of venues to take the message to more places: "I have the requests but there is nothing in particular until that does not end with this exhibition is that we will commit ourselves to another one ".
