Tonight’s program is a tribute to the late and dearly beloved poet, musician composer, spiritual leader, healer, feminist, internationalist and activist, Mamacoatl, Silvia Parra. We include her original poems and songs recorded at KPFA, and her historic conversation on the divine feminine with poet laureate Mary Rudge and Nina Serrano in 2010. We also offer an original elegy to her by Rafael Jesus Gonzalez, accompanied by Gera Marin on the indigenous flute.
A raffle of airline tickets to Nicaragua and 2 nights at a hotel will also be announced! Listen and enjoy!
Produced by Julieta Kusnir, Vanessa Bohm, Nina Serrano and Brenda Illescas.
