Somos Arte featured on Remezcla

The progressive media website, Remezcla, recently featured Somos Arte: The Creative Movement of El Salvador on an article written by Yara Simon. 

When it comes to El Salvador, the media mostly focuses on the violence, gangs, and poverty that makes life difficult for many. And while it’s true that these things are a part of the country, they shouldn’t wholly define this, or any, nation,” writes Simon.

As long time fans of Remezcla, we can’t put into words how honored we are to have our first documentary featured. Thank you Remezcla! Read the full story here

Normandie Records teams up with MOLAA for 2019

In 2019, the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) will be the official host for the premiere of “Somos Arte: The Creative Movement of El Salvador,” a documentary project about a grassroots arts movement in the country of El Salvador.

 

About Somos Arte: The Creative Movement of El Salvador

Normandie Records presents, Somos Arte: The Creative Movement of El Salvador, a documentary production highlighting the grassroots arts movement currently taking place in El Salvador.

Without history of a sustainable arts economy or assistance from the government to nurture its national art, Somos Arte: The Creative Movement of El Salvador will shine a light on the inspiring story of a collective who has single-handedly brought independent music to national prominence. With no signs of slowing down, they are redefining how the rest of the world perceives their homeland.

The documentary takes you into the heart of this movement with exciting interviews, behind the scenes footage, and an exclusive look into the lives of these artists.

 

A story decades in the making, Somos Arte: The Creative Movement of El Salvador is scheduled to premiere at MOLAA in 2019 as part of a 2 day festival at the museum featuring live music, food, meet and greets, panels, and much more.
