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.

Caridad de la Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja), shown at right, will be performing at Momma's Hip Hop Kitchen. Now in its tenth year, the annual event (subtitled this year "Still I Rise"), Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen (MHHK) is a multifaceted hip hop event designed to showcase women artists, especially women of color. 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. La Bruja will be joined on stage by Carina Vázquez De La Luz, who, besides being an artist in her own right, is de la Luz's daughter. This year's event will take place on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the Hostos Center for Arts and Culture, located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. For more information, click here.
