COATLICUE “MOTHER OF GODS”

For our 18th Annual Dia de los Muertos, we honor the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and the sun. Join us as we celebrate the divine feminine, the loving mother that unites us all! Coatlicue (/kwɑːtˈliːkweɪ/) “skirt of snakes” “mother of the gods”, is the Mexica-Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and Huitzilopochtli, the god of the sun and war. She is the the Great Mother, in whom both the womb and the grave co-exist.

Her most famous monumental representation was at the Temple Mejor in Mexico City. After the Spanish Conquest, the temple was destroyed and her statue was buried because it was considered an inappropriate pagan idol by Spanish invaders. After languishing in obscurity for more than 200 years, She was rediscovered in 1790.

Not long after She was found, however, Coatlicue was reburied—She was considered frightening and pagan. Eventually, she was uncovered again in the twentieth century, becoming one of the crowning objects of the National Anthropology Museum and Mexican/Aztec identity.

“The post-conquest history of the statue of Coatlicue is connected to the ideology of Mexican nationalism, to the history of aesthetics, to surrealism and to Chicano feminism. It has been an object of horror, extolled as a thing of beauty hidden from view, exhibited as a masterpiece, and is the subject of endless speculation” – Jean Franco

We summon and celebrate the lost Mother Goddess of the Americas to pay tribute to Feminine Power and Divinity. She will not be silenced. She will not remain buried and forgotten. She is the Mother who creates us and the Earth who welcomes us upon Death. The irrepressible and indestructible Coatlicue rises again to inspire and guide Dia de Los Muertos 2018.

Camilo Lara was simply creating holiday mixes for friends but they convinced him to take his songs into the studio. At the time, he was busy working in the music business, but found time to start recording at night and through those humble beginnings, Mexican Institute of Sound (M.I.S) was born.
Hello Seahorse!
Hello Seahorse!

Y La Bamba

Luz Elena Mendoza's story is one sung to her ancestors and humanity, exploring a faith that is greater than just religion, and a life of metamorphosis and awakening.

Born in San Francisco as a first generation daughter of immigrant parents from Michoacan Mexico, she spent her childhood raised by the melodies and stories that were being told through traditional Mexican folk songs.

From the intimate, contemplative verses in her native-language, to the revelations of the history in her roots, her story is delivered with poise. Mendozas poetic expression is raw, and ever evolving.

These songs are a soundtrack built for coming to grips with, not just one’s own mortality, but the fragility of the world, presenting sounds that carry the realness of ancestral trauma and the search of identity.
Loli Molina
Loli Molina
Loli Molina, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and currently based in Mexico City, is a celebrated singer-songwriter and guitarist. She’s performed in major venues throughout Latin America, won MTV awards, been twice nominated for Argentina's Gardel Awards, and received acclaim from fellow musicians and critics across genres. Loli’s formal training began in Argentina, where she studied classical, jazz, and popular guitar, styles she has woven into her own unique approach to voice and guitar. From a young age Loli has shared recording studios and performances with luminaries Kevin Johansen, Nano Stern, Fito Páez, Santiago Vázquez, Fernando Cabrera, Ximena Sariñana and Juan Quintero, and many more.

After two releases by Sony Music Argentina, Loli began walking a new path of professional and musical independence and self-management, and released her third album, the acclaimed “Rubí”.

She participated as guest guitarist and singer with the Mexican group Kinky on the recording of their MTV Unplugged album, a work that received a Latin Grammy nomination, and toured with the band to support the release. Since 2015, Loli and her band have played major festivals and venues throughout Mexico and South America, including a sold-out show with a string quartet in Buenos Aires.

2017 saw a duo tour with Brazilian musician and cultural figure Chico Cesar, a tribute to Chet Baker project, and an EP release with top jazz musicians from Mexico City.

Loli is now sponsored by Fender Guitars, becoming an ambassador to Latin America for the legendary American brand.

With strength and delicacy, a restless mind, a virtuosic guitar and a sensitive voice, Loli is preparing
new material to present in 2018: two new albums, along with tours in Latin America, Europe and USA performing her own songs, and another, more focused on a jazz repertoire.
