Miami (September 10, 2013).- Musicians from the United States and Latin America will come together this Thursday, September 19 at 10:00 AM in the Miami Sacred Well located on 87 SW 11 St. Miami FL 33130, as part of the opening of the first international festival: “Everybody says Aho”. The opening of this festival makes a call for caring for our waters, especially the Everglades of Florida, one of the largest wetlands of the world that has diminished its size by 50% in the last 100 years.

Surrounded by the impressive modern Brickell buildings, the sacred Well has been defended by Ishmael Golden Eagle, who for 50 years has dedicated his life to protecting and caring for this sacred place. In this space, the Tequesta people have left remnants of their presence, along with an underground spring that remained hidden for a long time and served as a water source for natives. As part of the efforts to achieve collective consciousness about the importance of water, in the same press conference, the artists will announce their concert Everybody says Aho, an event that will bring together musicians like Hector Buitrago, a Mexica from El Paso, Texas, the Venezuelan singer-songwriter Jesus Hidalgo accompanied by the prominent Venezuelan mandolin player, Harny Silve, and Spanish guitarist Michel Gonzalez. Other musicians like Carlos Torres, Harold Henao, Teri Catlin, Las Munayas, Medicine Box, and Kuyayky will also participate.

The concert reunites different artistic disciplines like paintings of Colombian visionary artist, Alvaro Santamaria, and videographers Gabriel Orenstein that will present his short film “Eagle Heart”, and Diego Salazar that will present his teaser “Mambe”, both with themes related to their ancestral vision.

The concert will take place on Saturday, September 21 at the William and Joan Leham Theater of Miami Dade Colege North Campus (11380 NW 27 Ave Miami FL 33167) at 6:00 pm. This concert is sponsored by the MDC North Campus, Pachamama Project Foundation, The International Magazine of Things from Chile, Kuyayky Foundation, The Musical Village, Talento Management, Boom Promotions, Unity is Change, and Narcotic Anonymous. Tickets for the event have a cost of $25 and are available at www.tickeri.com under the concert name “Todo el Mundo dice Aho” (Everybody says Aho).
