A great legacy of 7,000 musical scores was preserved for centuries by native musicians in the Jesuit missions of Chiquitos in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, an area declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Polish musicologist Father Piotr Nawrot brought them to light and founded the International Festival of Renaissance and Baroque Music of Bolivia. He began a collaborative partnership with Ashley Solomon, Artistic Director of Florilegium in the UK, and the Arakaendar Choir debuted in 2006.
