ISHTO Juevez, a traveling guatemalan singer songwriter and gypsie with an invisible trumpet, began its musical journey busking in the streets of South América and Europe evolving into what now is a musical career and project, a collaboration with many talented artists in the streets and big scenarios have influenced the swingy cumbia style, a poem generator for human causes and latin blues and bizarre jumpy landscapes.
His published materials Chapuz Chapin (2013), ELE migrante (2014) La Fortuna (2016) are all independently generated, a personal narration of a search for identity being a white latino in an indigenous nation, a migration and a return to write songs. From the streets he has shared stages with people who he admires, like Café Tacvba and Gaby Moreno to name a few, and the places and countries that he has been invited to share his music. ISHTO is now just released RIO a new coming single in advance far what is to come this year.
