THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA–ANGELA ROA, WHO YOU TALKIN’ TO FANNY, HARRY GAMBOA JR, POLITICAL SALSA WITH SAL BALDENEGRO AND MORE!
This week’s video is a visit with Chilean-born lyricist and singer Angela Roa and her band. She renders a thoughtful original song, “Toco Desafinado” (Out of Tune). Check out this inspiring trans-Latino song and see if you can identify all the people she refers to in the song.
Our monthly bloggers return. Fanny Garcia interviews Chas Croslin on his ten-year work with the famed El Teatro Campesino based in San Juan Bautista, California. Sal Baldenegro continues with remembrance of the Tucson Chicano community, this time recalling the integration of the all Black elementary school by Mexican and Chinese kids. Fascinating history. Harry Gamboa Jr brings us another of his original writings. This particular blog is hard to qualify: short story, play, scenario? You decide–well worth reading.
And, of course, our weekly bloggers return. Angela Ortiz has new photo of the Week, this time a unique view of the “Disney Hall.” Sergio Hernández has been watching world affairs in Iraq and makes a wry observation about the Iraq army’s military salute. In this week’s Zombie Mex Diaries episode, Pearl and Lazaro are back from the Amboy Crater reconn trip and Pearl reveals a starling discovery to Lazaro.
Enjoy your summer and this week on Latinopia.com
