Sara Curruchich (Guatemala)

Opening Act: Guate DJ (Guatemala)

Sara Curruchich was born in 1993 in San Juan Comalapa, Chimaltenango, in a Mayan Kaqchikel community, in the central highlands of Guatemala. Her music is born from her people’s collective and individual feelings, history, memory, culture, languages and struggles, as well as her own, personal stance as an artist. Sara Curruchich is the first indigenous Guatemalan singer and songwriter to sing in Kaqchikel (her mother tongue), as well as Spanish, for an international audience. Her voice and message of love, awareness, respect and defense of life in all its forms, have led many people to regard her as a beacon of light and hope.

Guate DJ will open the show. Guate DJ has been a professional DJ for 30 years working throughout the Chicago & suburbs Salsa Night clubs and festivals. He has been the official DJ of the Chicago International Salsa Congress since 2003.
