Andes Tribe

Ely Sun, from Argentina and Javiera Olavarría, from Chile, are dancers and American Tribal Style Bellydance teachers who met in Australia with the same goal: to dance and express their art. They met through social networks and after a first magical get-together at Bondi Beach, they formed an immediate bond of sisterhood as if they had been friends all their lives. This discovery led them to start their journey together based on their love for this dance genre, thus creating the Tribal Style Bellydance Company Andes Tribe, a name inspired by the Andes Mountain Range. This mountain range, in addition to being a distinctive emblem of South America, is a symbol of union between Chile and Argentina. (Facebook).

Tommy Francisco

Being vulnerable and honest is very powerful. I’m not classically trained, I’ve never had a singing coach, I've never been taught how to play guitar but I refuse to let that stop me from pursuing music.

I have been playing songs, with my guitar, inside of dive-bars since I was 16. I’ve gone through it all, from shouting drunkards, to sleeping stooges, to crowds that sing along to every word and I’ve loved every moment.

Music is all I've been good at, and I always seek to get better.
