THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: RICARDO ROMO’S TEJANO REPORT ON ARTIST SANTA BARRAZA, BURUNDANGA BORICUA ON “DISOCIADOS,” MIS PENSAMIENTOS WITH ALFREDO SANTOS AND MARTHA GONZALEZ AND QUETZAL WITH ‘TODO LO QUE TENGO.”
Orale Raza! Hope all are well and weathering the pandemic. This week Ricardo Romo’s Tejano Report brings us a profile of Mexican American artist Santa Barraza. Santa has evolved an entire visual language couched in pre-Columbian imagery and infused with her own South Texas sensibility. See her beautiful evocative art.
Our regular Puerto Rican blogger José Umpierre brings us an analysis of the recent election which has raised questions of legitimacy when more than 200 boxes of uncounted votes being recently discovered. Que pasó? And what does this mean for the reputation of the Puerto Rican State Commission on Elections entrusted with running fair and efficient elections? Check it all out in this Spanish blog.
From Austin our Tejano blogger Alfredo Santos brings us his pensamientos from the monthly publication he edits and publishes, La Voz. This week he comments on the passing of historian Juan Gómez-Quiñones. And of course you can read the entire issue of December La Voz at: http://www.lavoznewspapers.com
Also this week, Check out Martha Gonzalez and the group Quetzal as they perform the original song written by Martha, “Todo Lo Que Tengo” (All that I have). This is an awesomely romantic song. Hay, it makes your Tia Tenopia get all sentimental!
Enjoy our week on Latinopia!
