This week Ryan, Garreth and Cody sit down with photographer, filmmaker and hip hop artist Tito Henríquez. Rapping under the name Dicho, Henríquez is the son of El Salvadoran parents who were displaced during the Civil War that lasted from the late 1970s until the early 1990s. Through family, his extensive travels to El Salvador, and his time learning Photo/Film at VCUarts, Henríquez carries an artist’s eye–and ear–through all he does.
You can follow Dicho’s work on Instagram, and his music can be heard on all major streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, and more. You can also follow Dicho on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
