EVENT| MOVIMIENTOS (@Movimientos) PRESENTS: SOMOS GUERRERAS: REBECA LANE, NAKURY & AUDRY FUNK.

LONDRES

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.
