Back in June, an active volcano in Guatemala erupted in disaster. Currently, the death toll stands at 116. Another 302 people are reported as missing, and nearly 13,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. It's a harrowing reality and one that hits Guatemalan bass producer Carnage close to home.

It's easy in times of crisis to feel lost and helpless, but Carnage will use his musical platform to raise money for the victims and their families with a special charity event in his native Guatemala City. It's called Desde Las Cenizas, translated to "From the Ashes," and it will bring a lineup of local artists to Forum Majades on Aug. 14.

"I’ve been working on this show since the day this tragedy happened,” Carnage said in a press release. “I promised myself and my family that I would take action.”

Local musicians Ale Q, Pako Rodriguez, Francis Davila and more will join Carnage on the bill. Tickets are on sale now. If you would like to help the victims of the volcano, but are unable to attend, GoFundMe published a list of verified outreach initiatives. Check the flyer below for more information about Desde Las Cenizas.
