Apparently endemic to the highlands of Guatemala, don’t forget to get some on our next trip.

Gaby Moreno @Parque Central Guatemala - por Hugo Murales

Latin Grammy winner Gaby Moreno performed yesterday in a cold night in the middle of Parque Central. We had very little Blues or Soul tunes in the concert, she was here promoting her most recent production “Posadas”, a Christmas Album.
