Mayan Poetry

Keep on making music or try to be heroes of their own lives?

Mayan Poetry is a hip-hop band singing in the Mayan language. They won a competition to fund a precise goal: be heard by the natives who are abandoning their language. The conflict begins when their dreams are parallel to their socio-economic situation, and they have to choose whether to continue making music or try to be the heroes of their own lives.
