Doctor Nativo https://www.facebook.com/drnativomusic/Direct from Guatemala, Doctor Nativo’s music explores themes of Mayan spirituality, social justice and folk wisdom. Punctuated by an explosive sound combining reggae, cumbia, hip hop, and Mayan traditional music, his live show is a powerful experience that has captivated audiences all throughout Turtle Island and Europe. Doctor Nativo first made his name in the Guatemalan hip hop scene, working with the highly acclaimed group Bacteria Soundsystem Crew. After years of combining reggae and hip hop,he began to explore his indigenous roots under the guidance of the elder Tata Pedro. In pursuing this path, he formed the first Mayan rap group, Balam Ajpu, who are known throughout Mayan communities for rapping in Tz'tujil, celebrating the traditional cosmology, and sharing their culture with a wider audience. Building on this success, Doctor Nativo has recorded his first solo album, Guatemaya, this year. With an infectious sound reminiscent of Manu Chao and Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, it will appeal to fans of world music and those interested in indigenous culture.His electrifying performance will move audiences and take them on a visceral journey to the land of the Maya. He will be touring in 2017.DJ Juana Go-GoSome deep knowledge of salsa/cumbia, a great record collection, and some serious skill give this Cali native the power to hype a party.
