Each 12 October latin america commemorates the “Day of Indigenous Resistance” as a means to recognize the Americas’ fight for self-determination, unity and cultural and human diversity. This day also serves to vindicate the indigenous peoples of the American continent and as well as the contributions made by the African, Asian and European culture and peoples. This commemoration celebrates the spirit of dialogue, peace and justice between civilizations through the music, recognizing that music can be a powerful tool for social change.
