Omar Barrientos, bassist of the band 37Degree GT, commented: «We want to do something different and reach all those people who have not been able to enjoy a rock concert. This is the first step, but we hope that at some point there will be more opportunities to break down the barriers of inclusion.”

The members of the Guatemalan band have been playing together since 2018, but it was since 2020 when they decided to call themselves that as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, since they wanted to convey that they feel good.

A rock concert in sign language

The Academy Listen to your Skillful Hands will be the one who interprets with sign language to the attendees and for this the teachers Jammilleth Pozuelos and Monica Juarez will be present.

Jammilleth Pozuelos, one of the teachers at the academy, says that they have practiced the songs so that people with hearing disabilities can feel and enjoy the music. Pozuelos added: “It is the first concert with sign language. We are excited.”

Pozuelos expects many people to come so they can feel the vibrations of the music and enjoy a new experience. In other countries they have used sensory vests so that people can feel the vibrations, but they still do not have that technology.
