Galguez Laxá is an independent folkloric dance troupe from the Zapotec community of San Pablo Güilá, Santiago Matatlán, Tlacolula, Oaxaca made up of indigenous, Zapotec youth between the ages of 15-25. They seek to preserve the folkloric dances of the state of Oaxaca and take them to every corner of the world so that the footwork, humor, colors, and food of this beautiful region can become known.
Dizá is an indigenous, four-member, rock band from San Pablo Güilá, Oaxaca, México whose songs are sung in the native Zapotec language of the region. The band was formed in 2015 as part of an effort to preserve the language along with its stories, legends, and myths that are being lost to the younger generations. The band has won awards locally and are cultural ambassadors and role models for their community both inside and outside of Mexico.
This concert is made possible thanks to the support of Galzak A.C., a civil association founded in 2018 in Oaxaca who founded the Galguez Laxá group and have been supporting the artistic and economic efforts to lift up the indigenous communities of the region.
