Well firstly, I’ve been co-hosting “The Bobbito Garcia Radio Show” on Mondays from 2 – 4PM on East Village Radio the last couple of weeks, which you can tune into #WORLDWILD at www.eastvillageradio.com. Tio Bob invited acclaimed journalist/author [and my #Shero], Raquel Cepeda on the show on September 9th – make sure you pick up her book “Bird of Paradise.”
September 9, 2013 with Nati, Bobbito and Raquel Cepeda!
As I said on Instagram after reading Raquel’s book: “1 story of #LaRazaCosmica thru a Hip-Hop generation lens. We must drop the baggage of self-hate which I do understand was a mechanism for survival of the last generation – so that we can soar & fight White Supremacy primarily [which would begin to breakdown a lot of other things needed for us to govern civilly and lead to preserving our most high, La Madre Tierra] for a new way, TOGETHER. “…guiding me from one place to another with purpose.” #Conrazón #SheroSaturdays #SupportSisters” – get your hands on her book!
This past Monday, September 16, I helped Bob interview Psychedelic Salsa band, ‘La Mecanica Popular.’ We talked about the group’s new video shot in Williamsburg’s last Latin social club, the body/mind divide and SEXO Y SALSA. Si Si!

Oh, and Bob was featured in the NY Times a couple of weeks ago. Read the piece by David Gonzalez. “No out of bounds can describe his life.” http://nyti.ms/1eVO1YM #InspirationArchives
I just started working with NYC-based Psychedelic Salsa band [yes, you read that right!] – La Mecanica Popular. They debuted their first music video “La Paz Del Freak” on Remezcla – a single off their debut self-titled coming out in November on Brooklyn vinyl label, Names You Can Trust. You’re not going to want to miss their next live show at Lit Lounge on September 21 [watch footage from their last show, courtesy of Sounds & Colours Magazine] – vaya! Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. #PsychedelicSalsa #ThirdWaveSalsa #NYCSalsa
I’m mostly feeling completely refreshed after Zuzuka Poderosa played queer-friendly fashion-line Marimacho‘s New York Fashion Week debut in Williamsburg [check a review of the line]. She shared the bill with the warrior woman, Wavy Spice. I met Wavy at Remezcla’s The Spot in 2011, when I put her on my guest list. She saw Zuzuka perform live that night for the first time and on Saturday night told us both how much seeing that performance inspired her to finally take up the mic after writing poetry. These are the moments I do this work for! Zuzuka’s gearing up to announce a European tour in November and working on new music and a video for the song ‘Psicodelia‘ – a dance song in a world of war. #Powher #CariocaBass #PussyPower
