Durham.- With the aim of raising funds, the psychedelic cumbia performer Kiko Villamizar will perform this Thursday, August 8, in Durham.

Prior to his performance at the North Carolina Folk Festival in Greensboro this weekend, the Miami-born musician of Colombian blood makes a stopover in Durham to participate in an event for human rights and in support of local artists.

With the aim of raising funds, the musician of Colombian origin will perform this Thursday, August 8 at 8:00 pm at The Fruit, in downtown Durham.

The beneficiary organization will be Witness for Peace Southeast and the funds will be used to pay for the visit and presentations of the Colombian indigenous activist María Violet Medina Quiscué on her November tour of North Carolina.

With operations since 1983, the organization has managed to connect more than 20 thousand delegates in Latin American countries; currently with operations in Colombia, Cuba and Honduras.

The main objective of activists with visits like Violet Medina’s is to raise awareness of the experience of affected peoples with policies or corporate actions in their countries of origin.

In the place you can also enjoy tamales and you will have the opportunity to meet Tirzah Villegas, the new director of Witness for Peace Southeast, an organization that benefited from the event.

The cost of access will be a suggested donation of $20 dollars, without rejection for lack of money, and tickets can be purchased in this site.
