The War of Art

S1M5 – War Of Art

Minisode 5??? But we're missing the 4th one! Don't worry, it'll make its way in as some post-season bonus content.

For now we've got Lu in the drivers seat and BOY is this one a doozy. Its the tale of a war that's not really a war. It's a tale of contradictions, hypocrisy, and resistance.

Find out about the Artivism of Francisco Matos Paoli as we take on a journey that starts with World War II and ends with a man fighting with his art. Its a story of broken promises with leaders on the US Mainland like FDR/Harry Truman and leaders on the Island like Pedro Albizu Campos and Luis Munoz Marin fight for the fate of Puerto Rico as we know it.

 

Enjoy!!

Coming Soon!!

Negrita

S1E2-Negrita

Welcome back to Rico en Sueños all! Lu and Wilson here! We hope episode one was equal parts entertaining and enlightening because they're here to bring you the second submission of the season; and what a submission is it!

There are many social complexities when we talk about race identity and blackness. With the census coming up, the question of what box Puerto Ricans can check is coming up again.  This has put a spotlight on the African aspects of Puerto Rican culture and some injustices experienced by Afro-Boricuas today.

Last Episode They talked about the parts of the Taíno culture that stayed alive in Puerto Rican Heritage. Today we're going to continue exploring the Black/African roots still alive on the island.

We've got three fabulous and phenomenal guests for this episode -- Esmeralda Santiago, Isabel Dieppa, and Venessa Vida-Kelley -- who reflect and share their thoughts about the prominent cultural influence the people of Africa brought to the island of Puerto Rico.

Esmeralda reflects on the African roots in her own blood as we talk about her depiction of enslaved people on the island in her Novel "Conquistadora"

Isabel shares the inspiration behind her decision to use Orishas in the Puerto Rican story she's working on

Vanessa shares her experience with the Afro-Borinquen music style known as Bomba and the place of music in her web comic Manu

And Isabel talks with us about in a discussion about her reporting about Loiza

This is a good one listners!!! So get ready for some more of those rich dreams from the island.

You can find all of Esmeralda's works via her website and follow her on Twitter - @Esmo.

For all things Isabel check out her website and her Twitter - @IsabelSDieppa.

For more of Manu and Venessa's works visit here and here, and also follow her on Twitter - @VScrivanoKelley (she's a big Wayward Son fan!)

¿Y Tu Abuela Donde Esta?

S1M1- ¿Y Tu Abuela Donde Esta?

Lu here with our first Minisode.

In this first minisode we have a mic-mashup. Our last episode talked about how many Puerto Ricans consider themselves a mix of Spanish, Taíno , and African heritage.

During our interviews for the season, kept coming across this phrase "¿Y Tu Abuela Donde Esta?" or "And where's your grandmother?". This phrase worked its way into the vernacular via a poem by Fortunato Vizcarrondo and has come to be a way ask someone what their ethnic background or heritage is.

It felt like our guest were having a conversation about this topic with each other and so I wanted to share that with you all in this first minisode to bridge our conversation about Boricua Taíno heritage last episode into our discussion of Afro-Boricua heritage in episode 2. Hope you enjoy!
