HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip". In this sense, we use it to highlight 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.

Modesto Flako Jiménez, shown at right, and The Brooklyn Gypsies Collective are presenting "Colors", the latest edition in its Ghetto Hors d'Oeuvres series (a series of poetic theatrical performances in which rappers and poets break down borders and collaboratively create an ode to Brooklyn’s gritty streets). The performances will be directed by Jiménez and feature a performance by Tony Award-winning performer Lemon Andersen. The shows will take place at the end of April at the Bushwick Starr (in Brooklyn's Bushwick neighborhood). For more information, click here or here.

José Roldán, Jr. will be performing an excerpt of his self-penned, award-winning solo show Father Forgive Me For I Have Sinned (developed with Dante Albertie and directed by Rosie Berrido) on Friday, April 8, 2016 at the Latino Pride Center in Manhattan's El Barrio neighborhood. For more information, click here.

Caridad de la Luz (also known by her nom de musique et de poésie La Bruja), shown at left, will be performing on a bill with fellow poets Emanuel Xavier and Bonafide Rojas at the Culture Shock event produced by Friends of the High Line. The performance will take place on Saturday afternoon, April 23, 2016 al fresco at the Tenth Avenue Square and Overlook on the High Line elevated public park in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. For more information on the event (or the series, which is curated by Xavier), click here.

The Cuban music group Máxima Alerta (featuring Lucio Fernández) will return in May to the famed nightspot Maxwell's (in Hoboken, New Jersey) after a previous sold out concert appearance there. Their performance, on Friday, May 13, 2016, will also feature special guests Ariacne Trujillo and Olivia Durán. For more information, click here or here.
