Antigua, Guatemala: I'll Fly Away


Hotel Panza Verde, Antigua, Guatemala. April 2016.


Now, who would think one would encounter in Antigua a little concert by the Kossoy Sisters, whose popular claim to fame came from their version of I'll Fly Away in one of my favorite movies, O Brother Where Art Thou?

Hotel Panza Verde, Antigua, Guatemala. April 2016.


But there you go. Performed at the Hotel Panza Verde in Antigua, which borrows the nickname for Antiguans - "green belly." Green belly refers to Antiguans' reputation for eating mass quantities of avocados, to the amusement of other Guatemalans.

Here is the video of the performance at the hotel: 




My charming airbnb hostess, M, took me to this event.
