Our summers in Guam couldn’t get anymore steamier than a series of events hosted by the hottest local radio station on island, i94 teaming up with Current Guam in bringing the latest and greatest musical experience. The duo partnered with Budweiser for the ultimate flyaway giveaway, all expense paid tickets to watch today’s trending acts in the ‘Made in America’ Music Festival in Philadelphia. With all this heat, they needed a few things to cool it down - refreshing performances from new live local acts like Pop Rocks & Soda, and of course, to bring the heat down with a splash - Chamorrita Swimwear raising the tides.
With an opening act of cultural dancers led by Clint Agustin, the crowd was captivated by the beating of the drums, swaying of the hips and the fire blazing in the air. Channeling the pride and confidence of the ancient Chamorros, the models were covered in white body paint resembling artwork from the pasts with a modern-day twist painted by graffiti artists Lee San Nicolas for a warrior look. Capturing the show with his talent in photography and for always being in the scene of the nightlife for many years is photographer, Allan from @hitdaspot_hotshots.
