“Bridging Indigenous and Modern Wisdom & Music” with Daniel "El Suchi" Garcia
Daniel “El Suchi” Garcia is an artist, director, music producer and all around visionary. Born in Guatemala he is the bridge of his indigenous and European roots.
In this episode we discuss healing trauma across generations. We open up about the importance and difficulty of uplifting people voices of indigenous and traditional peoples without co-opting them or pretending like they're are our own. We talk about the importance of leading with a positive vision of the future that inspires others and comes from listening to our heart.
