Heavy Metal music is simply unique in Latin America. Whether inspiring support for rural schools in Guatemala, engaging in environmental activism in Ecuador, or working for peace in Colombia, heavy metal music has become a form of decolonization activism in Latin America; a force to be reckoned with beyond the stage, taking to the streets and tackling the problems of post-colonialism (poverty, dictatorships, neoliberalism) like no other musical genre. Spanish with English subtitles.
