The Sanchez brothers, Moises (left), 20, and Anderson (right), 17, play guitar and sing in their room in their adopted city of Tapachula, southwest Mexico, close to the border with Guatemala.

Background: The Sanchez brothers’ family had a comfortable life running a shop in El Salvador until a gang threatened them with extortion — demanding monthly rent or violence towards the family. When the gang tried to force the middle brother, Anderson, to join them, the boys fled with their father, who later abandoned them in Mexico.
