Very Talented by Jose Moreno

This is Hafid, one half of the very talented group Proyecto Boreas. He plays the guitar and his counterpart Alizabeth, plays the cello extremely well. They used to perform in Moonkat and on occasion play in El Cuartito. If you are in Xela and have the chance to hear them live, it is well worth it!

Rockin’ “for” the Free World

Concert by Luna McCarthy

On Friday night there was a big concert at the Municipal Theatre in protest of the possible “militarization” of the country, due to the new government. There were throngs of people who watched the concert…I’m not sure if they were just raising awareness or money as well, but it was great to see Guatemalans voicing out against worries of what the country’s future might hold.

Off the ground

In Xela, night after night dance follows music. After the big concert at Central Park on Friday night, last night, there was a break dance/hip-hop battle near Plaza Ciani. The dancers were from all over Guatemala. I couldn’t wait until the end of the battle, because of the cold weather (again). But as far as I saw, the whole thing was really cool and especially the message that they were trying to spread was important. The point was to emphasize the generational differences yet the uniformity among youth. I wish the participation of Xela folks was greater, though.

I shot usual break dance scenes, too. But these little details seemed more interesting to me. What do you think?
