A little about the bands:
Peruvian immigrant Anais Azul (they/them) is a composer-performer, Fulbright Scholar, and teaching artist.
Described as “stunningly honest and vulnerable,” their artistry engages with music as a tool for community building, cross-genre collaboration, and collective healing.
Arnoldo Garcia combines visual arts, music, spoken word and poetry in his work as a culture-maker.
Arnoldo is also a musician rooted in Mexican and Latin American traditions and a poet, writer and editor. His work has been featured in the online literary journal, La Bloga, and is a featured poet in different cultural and political gatherings.
