Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

Microfestival Fundraiser with Tatewari at Octopus's Garden

Lori Wilson - Amigos de La Cruz
April 19, 2013

Esau Galván Saltos

Come join us Saturday, April 20, at the Octopus's Garden Cafe in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle for a Microfestival Fundraiser. Open mic, auction, raffle, local art exhibition, poetry reading and Tatewari as our featured musicians.
Tatewari is developing a month-long music and cultural tour for Canada. These young men from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle have played together for 6 years, and recently released their second full length album. Their dedication and passion in producing original music deserves recognition which they can achieve with our support.

Proceeds from the live auction and raffle will go towards visas and airfare to send Tatewari on tour! Donations are welcome.

In the tradition of the Huichol indians, Tatewari is the oldest Huichol god, also known as Hikuri, the Peyote-god. He is personified with Peyote plants on his hands and feet, and he interprets all the deities to the modern shamans.  Tatewari is the source for the name of a wonderful group of young artists known well in Riviera Nayarit.

The core of Tatewari are two talented musicians from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Esau Galván Saltos (rhythm & lead guitar) and Daniel Marquez (bass guitar) are high school friends who have been performing in a variety of establishments in the region of Banderas Bay.

It was during an amateur music event at Ana Banana's Bar in La Cruz that Tatewari was born. They were 16 at the time, and as they continued playing regularly at "El Jardín del Pulpo" in the Huichol Gallery "Hikuri" in La Cruz, their eclectic and distinctive sounds of rumba flamenca, fusion, and world music captivated the audiences.

Doors will open at 6:00 pm with an exhibition of local art. Tatewari will take the stage at 7:15. Chris Bouchard will host the live auction at 7:45.

The Open Mic entertainment will begin at 8:00. Bring any instrument, singular musicians are welcome, improvised sets encouraged! Please limit poetry/reading/recitation sets to 5 minutes (exceptions may be made).

We'll take a break at 9:00 to draw the raffle tickets for some great prizes and then continue with the Open Mic.
The Octopus's Garden Cafe is located at 66 Calle Coral, Colonia Centro, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Riviera Nayarit.

For more information and reservations, contact Aly Conley by email at or by telephone at (329) 295-5071.

We hope to see you there for a fun evening and helping to support Tatewari's career.
