  • Julieta Kusnir also talks with Gina Madrid and Alex Leenson about the immigrant hip hop event, Dreams vs. Walls at La Pena in Berkeley… and a lucky person won the ticket giveaway to this wonderful La Pena event.
  • Nina Serrano discusses the Mission Poetry Movement with Avotcja: it‘s origins and development.  They read their early work from when they first met 40 years ago.
  • We hear marvelous music from Lila Downs and other Latin music luminaries.   Listen and enjoy!
