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 and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Caridad De La Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja) performed in August with the Abrazos Orchestra at Casita María (located in the Hunts Point section in the Bronx) at the second annual Dancing in the Streets street party event. She followed this up with a performance at the famed Nuyorican Poets Café (located in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood) at the Mix Hop Poetic Showcase. She will next perform at the People of the Way International Hip Hop Showcase on August 18, 2012 at the Bronx Music Heritage Center in the Circa '95 Pop-Up Shop (located in the Crotona section of the Bronx).
