HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Actor, singer, songwriter, filmmaker, producer, visual artist and arts advocate Lucio Fernández, shown at right, with one of his art pieces, had some of his artwork exhibited alongside the work of artist Woolga Choi at the Peace & Hope art exhibition at the United Nations General Assembly in February, after which the exhibition will tour Asia.

Héctor Luis Rivera stars in the short film Dondequiera que vayas (written and directed by Danilo Arroyo). The film is in post-production and will soon be hitting the film festival circuit. For more information, click here.

Caridad de la Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja), shown at left, will be one of the performers (along with Lah Tere, Rokafella, and others) of Momma's Hip Hop Kitchen, Volume 9: Universal Love! The event, an annual celebration designed to showcase woman artists, especially women of color, Momma's Hip Hop Kitchen (MHHK) serves as a social justice community-organizing platform that educates and empowers women of color on issues that impact their lives, including HIV/AIDS and reproductive justice. The event will take place on Saturday afternoon, March 5, 2016 at the Hostos Center for Arts and Culture, located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx.
