To the anon who asked for some Salvadoran Music

This is by NO means a ALL inclusive list cuz that would take forever so yeah I’ll break this up into some genres and give you a few artists.

Musica Tropical:

Xuc [lots of groups but i’ll give u the most famous one: 

Chanchona [music from Eastern El Salvador and you’ll notice two types. The original which only uses acoustic instruments n then the other style with accordion and keyboards ] :

Buenas Epocas [Early Rock bands in El Salvador]:

Miscellaneous:

#el salvador  #ok here u go anon  #i'm tired so i'm stopping here but you'll find lots more through all these 

the best advice i’ve ever gotten was roughly “everyday read one new poem, look at one new piece of art and listen to one new song” and of course being who I am I tend to do more than just one each but yes very helpful advice for growth.

"Decorum masks white violence. Everything about the norms of debate and proper behavior is the result of violence. Those of us who are the victims of this violence live it daily and consistently. That you have made it normal makes it no less violent. What you consider decorum, we consider very violent. There were no rules for decorum until Black debaters arrived. Why? Because you would need to see what debate does not look like in order to regulate what it should be like. The rules regarding civility will always be anti-Black. What is civil but for not-Black?"
