    Brown Genius 1.9 - The Mestiza Project | Denver

    The Mestiza Project was created in the spring of 2017.  Artists who identity with Mestiza/o, LatinX, Latina/o, Chicana/o, XicanX, Indigenous, and mixed races and cultures were invited to co-create the Mestiza Project.  We did not know who would show up, what would unfold, or what the end result would be.  Writers, poets, musicians, drummers, and interested community members gathered for a day of improvisational readings, jam sessions, drum circles and collaborations. 

    The Mestiza Project features Zay Rios, Ric Urrutia, Yuzo Nieto, Yaneis Autumn, Kimberly Ming, Yasmin Mercedes, Bianca Mikahn, Joshua Abeyta, Diego Florez, Molina Speaks, Sheree “lovemestiza Brown, and more.  The Project was recorded by Jesus Rodriguez and Sly “SG” Guevara, and produced by Rodney Sino-Cruz.

    The Mestiza Project - Denver was arranged by Molina Speaks to reflect a stream-of-consciousness journey through Mestiza/o time and space.

Food for the soul!!

It's pod cast that provides educational value and allows us to think instead of closing our minds and just listening. I recommend this to all those who wish to explore the mind and the beauty of being brown or any race.
