Delegacion Cuauhtémoc, Distrito Federal

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

ECLÉCTICA, the band led by the Peñalba sisters, with a fresh live performance, are brimming with energy and a lot of stage personality. Their songs are like pop hymns resonating in the collective subconscious, and they have more and more followers inside and outside the social networks. Among them is the group Despistaos, who invited Eclectica to accompany them on their Latin American tour, conquering Mexican audiences on CDMX. Eclectica have not only won the respect of great artists and the sympathy of the public, but have also captured the attention of renowned musical photographers such as Juanlu Vela and specialized journalists such as Julio Ruiz and Santi Alcanda from RNE3, or Carles Francino from La Ser.
