Somos Guerreras: Rebeca Lane, Nakury, Audry Funk - London debut! + Corroncha Son

Somos Guerreras was founded in 2014 as a series of workshops, talks and concerts for the empowerment of women in Central American and Mexican hip-hop culture.

In 2016, Somos Guerreras was consolidated as a collective of seasoned artists comprised of rappers Rebeca Lane (Guatemala), Nakury (Costa Rica) and Audry Funk (Mexico). From the beginning, the crew has focused on providing spaces of reflection, honing in on the challenges faced by women in hip-hop to find creative solutions and establish new alliances.

That same year, Somos Guerreras embarked on a 10-city tour starting in Panama and concluding in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Beyond their performances, spaces for discussion, education and event organizing were also facilitated. Nearly 80 women from the world of hip-hop were interviewed during this tour, the footage and testimonials of which are intended for a future documentary.

In November 2018, the trio of artists toured across eight Mexican cities, and in 2019, a new tour will take them to the United States, with scheduled performances in New York,New Jersey, Chicago and Washington DC. In 2019, Somos Guerreras will also release a collaborative EP, which they will tour in support of during June and July with a series of European performances in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and England.

Joining them special guests, feminist cumbia, son, rumba and rap collective Corroncha Son will be bringing the rhythms and sounds of Mexican fiesta music to London alongside MC Zaki & Barzo!

Perotá Chingó

Argentinian band Perotá Chingó is a project in constant transformation that today embarks on a new musical and conceptual chapter. Now the band is extending the boundaries of its acoustic style, interweaving folklore, the ancestral evocation of voices and the technological power of electronic beats. Having been touring the world for the best part of the last decade, they now bring their full live show to London’s Rich Mix for their UK debut.
