During days of anxiety, stress and confussion, I have found Guatemalan (represent) songwriter and artist Ishto Juevez gives me a great dose of chill pill. 

I first heard of his majestic existence from my cousin, Ana Isabel. She is a connoisseur of all-things art and music in Guatemala. She caught Ishto Juevez a few years back while he sang at an eco-friendly hostel in Antigua Guatemala called Earth Lodge.

Ishto Juevez, which roughly could translate to kid Thursday—since ishto is a Guatemalan slang word that means kid—is a regular live act at bad ass bars like Café No Sé (where the mezcal brand Ilegal Mezcal was born) also in Antigua.

If you ever get the opportunity to travel to my home country, and I, from the bottom of my heart, really recommend you make some room in your life for it, keep an eye out for Ishto Juevez, either performing at a hip bar in Guatemala City or the colonial beauty of Antigua, about 40 minutes from the capital.

Here's a piece of Ishto Juevez. I really hope it makes you feel as good as it's made me in certain days of desolation.
