We will make magic!

Ofrenda or “offering” with our words/song/ voice. we walk this path a someone integral path of the city stopping at historical places and we read,sing our offering we make an exchange; we offer it to the city, to the people that inhabit it, we speak our peace and we leave it there and we move forward. We take some of the city; the energy of the people that build it the sounds of life that live in it.
