This just in from Joaquin Lopez Music:
VOZ ALTA is an evening of music and poetry that celebrates the Latino American experience through poetic narratives that feature the lives of Portland’s Latino LGBTQ community, performed by actors and orchestrated live with Latin American folk songs. It is the opening event for Portland Latino Gay Pride 2014.*Written and produced by yours truly, Joaquin Lopez, this year’s VOZ ALTA spotlights community members who have found empowerment through music and the music of language–poetry. Featured stories include musician Edna Vazquez, poet Luna Flores, and my father Salvador Lopez. Performers includes seasoned Latina actors Nurys Herrera and Nelda Reyes with newcomer Izzy Ventura from Equity Foundation. Susana Jacobo from the renegade Latin American folk outfit Bajo Salario is musical director.
