    Doctor Nativo

    Mayan Reggae Cumbia

    Sunday, November 17, 7:00 pm

    $20 General; $15 Members and Full-Time Students

    Guatemala’s Doctor Nativo layers Mayan spirituality, social activism, and folk wisdom over a propulsive combination of reggae, cumbia, and hip-hop performed with pre-Columbian instruments. Born Juan Martinez, Doctor Nativo began traveling as a musician following his father's assassination in 1990 during the Guatemalan Civil War. Busking his way around the world, he found his artistic voice. At this empowering performance, he’ll play music from his debut album, Guatemaya—a proud assertion of Mayan identity and a call for social justice for Guatemala’s indigenous majority.
