Puerto Rico pride is in full force at the 2018 South By Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.

Chef Jose Andres has assembled some of Puerto Rico's rising stars for a special event called 'Sounds From Puerto Rico.'

The showcase aims to raise funds for Puerto Rico while showcasing some of the island's increible talent. Performers range from Latin trap artist Jhay Cortez to electronic indie band Balún.

Two of the groups on the lineup - Black Guayaba and Andrea Cruz - stopped by the Univision Austin office to talk to us about what it means to them to be a part of this event.
