I had an awesome time tonight celebrating with my Latino brothers and sisters. We shared poetry, music, history, smiles and encouragement! I shared a little and learned a lot! Even made new friends!
It brought back into remembrance my NY lower east side experience with CUANDO in the 8o’s . It was a musical theater that I performed and toured with for about 2 years! It was a play about the life and times of Joe Louis. We toured around New York and in prisons. It was a “musical crush” when I met and had the opportunity to work and sing with Gilbert Price (Timbuktu).
Back to the event… I was captivated by the poems (especially by Angel Martinez), storytelling and music by Dayluv that reflects then and now! I loved it! Here are some pictures of this great evening with old and new friends! Includes Dayluv’s video!
Dayluv’s performance was awesome!
