The brave Chilean Cueca songs with a gender perspective, will arrive in London looking forward to charming the old continent!
They will play two live performances in London on the 2nd and 3rd of October, as part of their first international tour “Cueca on Tour” to support a message of social recognition for women in the history of Chile and equal rights between men and women. For this reason the event is supported by the “Latin American Women’s Rights Service” from London and by volunteers from our website. This is not the only good news because all this effort is translated into something very positive for the community: the event is completely free for everyone!
They have two records called “Biting The Apple” and last year published “Cuecas de la Matria” (Cuecas from the Motherland) which highlights some of the most important women in the history of Chile. “The Cueca is a traditional dance and music style from Chile. It represents the manifestation of the people. Las Pescadoras modernise these songs, injecting new life into them by introducing lyrics focused on gender issues. They confront the conventional rules of an art form that is often skewed towards chauvinist attitudes.”, explains Daniela Meza singer of The Sinners; Women that Sing Cuecas.
