Hecho Magazine

I’m so excited to find Hecho Magazine, a magazine focusing on Nicaraguan music, art and culture.  The magazine itself is pretty new, with only 4 issues so far. But the website looks like a great resource for finding about about local events, especially local bands and artists. I’m sure we’ll be checking this out a lot once we get there. I have a feeling ‘local’ music is going to be a theme in Nicaragua – somehow, I don’t think Neko Case or The National are going to be hitting Managua on their next world tour.  The Hecho website has four blogs, some in Spanish and English.  One of them is a photography blog with some nice shots. Check out this photo by Sergio Cruz. It’s from a series called “Nicaragua el país de los niños.”
