CVI.CHE 105 South Beach Grand Opening

CVI.CHE 105 South Beach Grand OpeningFriday, October 24, 7pm – CVI.CHE 105 Miami Beach, 1245 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

CVI.CHE 105 unveiled their new South Beach location, officially open to public on Sunday, October 26th. Since September 2008, CVI.CHE 105 has been downtown Miami’s “go to” Peruvian restaurant, heralded for its innovative, hip and gourmet take on the famously delicious dishes found from the coastal city of Lima to the mountainous terrain of Cuzco. Chef / Owners Juan Chipoco and Luis Hoyos, the latter receiving his diploma as Chef at the Discovery Institute in Lima, rebounded from a failing restaurant concept in 2007, then embraced Peruvian heritage, created the CVI.CHE 105 brand, and became one of Miami’s greatest culinary turnaround stories, widely chronicled in magazines, television and food blogs. CVI.CHE 105 Downtown Miami is the highest-volume, highest-grossing Peruvian restaurant in South Florida, yet remains highly-rated and highly-respected due to the chef / owners’ meticulous, inspired take on ceviches, tiraditos, anticuchos and Peruvian-spiced meat and seafood dishes. CVI.CHE 105’s unlikely downtown business-district location is widely considered a pioneer in the transition of downtown Miami into a local foodie destination. The company also operates a catering division that brings the magic of CVI.CHE 105 to homes, offices and distinguished events. #CEVICHE105 #SouthBeach

#Sobreviviente Release Party with Diana Mera

#Sobreviviente Release Party with Diana Mera Sunday, October 19, 5pm – The Gaythering Hotel, 1409 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach

Sobreviviente is Diana’s most biographical and intimate song, the video was made with women from all over the world who dared to share their story and make their voice be heard through its lyrics.

“#Sobreviviente” as a single, video clip and human campaign was born from a wonderful dance that little girls in Bolivia did with Diana’s song obreviviente. «I was living in México City last year when a friend of mine sent me a clip from YouTube and I saw the girls dressed in white dancing to my song; that day I understood that I was not ready for a new album and a beautiful responsibility came to me, revive Sobreviviente and make it a Project that will give visibility to survivors like me to help current victims,” Mera said. Universal Music Group previously distributed the song but it was never picked as a single and now it will be released under Alcamay Entertainment, with a remix by DJ Carlo G MX and will have global distribution.

“I was strongly marked by my absurd and difficult childhood after many years of abuse. This song helped me feel free and clean the last of my pain but it is now with the music video and campaign that I am healing the remaining wounds”, Diana added. The lyrics of this inspiring song composed by Diana Mera and Dany Tomas can be identified with any story of survival of anyone in the world. About how after the horrors we can keep going forward, closing cycles and continue growing as people, professionals, artists etc.

For that reason, women from different nationalities that went through difficult experiences identified themselves with the #Sobreviviente message and got the courage to participate voluntarily in the video. No one was hired as an actor or model; they all posed with a sign that had a hash tag (#) saying the situation they overcame. Sobreviviente is already in radios of Latin America and it’s part of the soundtrack of the movie Homebound, directed by Fanny Veliz. Diana Mera has chosen the best moment to promote it because she is in a very special phase of her personal and professional life.
