Everybody Says Aho – Puerto Rico 2016. Musicians from Puerto Rico and Latin America will gather on August 18, 7:30 pm, at Siente y Vive, as part of the fifth international festival: “Todo El Mundo Dice Aho (Everybody Says Aho)”, to make a call to care for our waters. 

Medicine music from the Caribbean comes to fill the space with prayers of consciousness, by singers Lizette de la Ruda and Luisito Sairi, from the island of Borikén, also known as Puerto Rico. They walk through life as creators of art, they came together and recognized each other, beginning a new and ancestral path of healing tied to Mother Earth and her sacred plants.

Trece Lunas de Boriké will also participate; they are a group of women who are united to the heart of Mother Earth through the drum. The fusion of their voices is a channel of the medicinal chants that awaken ancestral memory and move the soul to sing and dance. Carlos Barsi and Enrique Cardenas, who have been collaborating together for over 15 years incorporating ethnic and traditional instruments of different cultures of the world, will also join. They offer musical magic capable of taking us on a journey through the universe of the interior of the human soul.

Joining this prayer will also be Dharma Agustina, “Arrow of Fire” with conscious bomba and plena, singer-songwriter and journalist Milton Carrero, Ligia “Jaguar Woman”, Gustavo “Mate Tate” Halley, singer, dancer, and activist Carmen Sanchez, and from Venezuela, the singer-songwriter and founder of the festival Everybody Says Aho, Jesus Hidalgo.

Medicine of Ancient Times is the musical offering of this ancestral breath to the tribes that today constitute themselves in the sacred work of creating a loving, dignified, and respectful reality where we are all ONE.
