In the mercado municipal of Antigua Guatemala you can find quite a few booths that offer movie selections similar to what you might find through the Red Box Movies, except here you take the discs home and you don’t have to return them. You may argue that this practice is so wrong, but when you live in a country that often gets blacklisted when trying to purchase music, films or watching movies, you don’t have many choices. This is why Netflix is so huge in Latin America, it allows us to pay for movie streaming.
On a totally different subject, is Guatemalan music coming up with a new identity and sound? Are there enough musicians to create this new Guatemalan musical movement? The music style of Raysa Morales and Ishto Juevez are typical samples of this new movement. El Gordo, Rebeca Lane, Maya Bellazzecca, Domingo Lemus and countless others are slowly but surely forging a new Guatemalan musical movement and style. Listen to some of the songs listed below and let me know what you think?
