To support the production of an audio recording for two new songs. Coming out of the Hurricane Irma and Maria experience I wrote a song, “Miel”, a celebration of our ancestors脮 hard labor and how we continue to resist. But we have to take care of ourselves so that we can go on. The second one is a Salsa style homage from a woman living in the projects to her best friend, an flamboyant gay man who helps her survive all her life difficulties. In this song she declares out loud, “Loquita de Barrio, eres mi amiga”.
