Tortón and Pepina.

The Musical Concert of Franz Gutierrez’ Friends will take place on Friday, August 29 from 8:00 p.m. at Pavo Real on Via Argentina. This is the first event organized for the purpose of raising funds to assist in the rehabilitation of Franz Gutierrez, the musician and composer better known in the national artistic scene as the clown “Tortón.”

The campaign, organized by the artist’s closest friends, carries the slogan “Torton’s hands are your hands,” a reference to how, after a work accident, his hands were severely affected. The event seeks to inspire and move those who enjoyed his instructive and fun TV programs and live performances of the “Pepina and Tortón Show” to contribute in order to collect the necessary funds for his treatment, either here or abroad.
