Claudia Armas @Lux Guatemala por Hugo Muralles

I think that I’ve said this before, there are a few good things about living in the chaos of the City and its surroundings, in terms of art and creativity. Both if you are looking to feed yourself or to feed others, I suppose.

Artistic venues come and go for every taste, this time, CCE Guatemala, hosts a curated series of concerts under the Aves Raras concept.  In the main picture, the Guatemalan singer songwriter, Claudia Armas.  Last night, she offered a magnificent and moving concert.

If you can attend, stay tuned to the calendar in their Facebook Page.

How close are you from your dream?

A cello in the street is a dream you can’t wait for.

On August 18,  we had the opportunity to live a beautiful Cello Concert experience. Eight cellists made the place resound. It started with a Sebastian Bach composition and ended with Guatemalan compositions by Ricardo Castillo and Paulo Alvarado.  The place was full and we enjoyed not only the songs but the way the masters Mr. Vinicio Quezada and Paulo Alvarado explained  each song in a dynamic way, and you could look in their eyes the passion of doing what they love. We heard difficult plays and a great variety of compositions. We could’ve stayed all night listening to them. Paulo Alvarado urged young composers to create new music, I think they’re already doing it, what do you think? 

I think if you find passion in something you must commit with it, and if you haven’t found one yet, maybe it’s closer than you think.

here a song called Cancion de Cuna from the master Ricardo Castillo.

Smartphones in Guatemala City

Monday, June 25th, 2012

The use of smartphones is increasing, people want to capture their favorite moments and share them. In early 2000, Guatemala has about 50 phones per 100 citizens. We could easily assume that this number has duplicate, at least, that was the case a couple of years ago.  In the country we have more cell phones than people.

How did that happen?

Well, having a cell phone is really cheap:  starting from Q.100.00 (about US$ 13.00) you can have a new one.  But it is also difficult to have a mobile phone in Guatemala, thousands of burglaries are reported annually and the number of deaths because of assaults, it is also alarming.

We currently have proposed legislation that seek to regulate the purchase and sale of phones to control crime, the law, is causing a lot of controversy because it suggests a series of measures that have not worked in other countries.

In the meantime, tap that button and upload the concert, girl! 🙂
