We are a group of living beings on this planet with artistic video and research skills that we want to use to help the universe to perform this tribute. All aspects of wisdom and ancestral medicine fascinate us. We put a lot of heart into what we do, and our mission is to present this information in an artistic way and make it available to those who do not have direct access to this kind of knowledge.
Javier Marco Barba, born in Valencia, Spain, is a Biologist with a PhD, Alphabiotist, vegetalist, photographer and co-founder of Tribute.
From a very young age he wanted to dedicate himself to medicine but his path led him to study biology first. He specialized in the study of climatic variability and the conservation of natural ecosystems in different research centers worldwide.
Four years ago he decided to leave the academy and redirect his path to his great passions: medicine, research and the study of alternative therapies, in collaboration with the indigenous communities of this planet.
His role in Tribute is the coordination and management of audio-visual and collaborative projects.
