HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Mike Smith Rivera and Tony Chiroldes, shown at right from left to right, booked the roles of William Harris and Dr. Makepeace, respectively in the film The Wailing through an HOLA casting notice. The film is produced by Latin Horror and La Sayona Productions and boasts Edwin Pagán as producer and director of photography, Ydaiber Orozco as associate producer and casting director and Leonardo Rodríguez as producer and director. Filming will begin in mid-January 2012 in and around New York City.

Caridad De La Luz
(also known by her nom de poésie et musique La Bruja) will be performing Bobby Sanábria and Quarteto Aché in Salsa Poe. A fundraiser for the Bronx County Historical Society, it is an evening of celebrating the work of Edgar Allan Poe, set to poetry and a Latin jazz beat. (Note: Poe was a Bronx resident and his cottage is a museum in the Bronx.) The event will take place on Friday, December 9, 2011 at the National Arts Club overlooking Gramercy Park in Manhattan.
