Best selling author T.J. English (The Westies, Havana Nocturne) curates a series of the best in contemporary Latin Jazz to celebrate the launch of his latest book The Corporation: An Epic Story of the Cuban American Underworld.
The series continues with a tribute to Cuban singer La Lupe ft. Caridad de la Luz.
Spoken word poet, actor, singer-songwriter, and community activist Caridad de la Luz, or “La Bruja,” was born and raised in the Bronx, and attended SUNY-Binghamton. De la Luz’s poetry explores social justice and Nuyorican identity. When she debuted at the Nuyorican Poets Café in 1996, de la Luz adopted the persona of “La Bruja” (“The Witch”). She has also shared her work on HBO’s Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam, and at the American Museum of Natural History. She has produced the album Brujalicious and the solo comedy show Boogie Rican Blvd. As an actor, she has appeared onscreen in Spike Lee’s Bamboozled and onstage in Pedro Pietri’s El Spanglish Language Sandwich. De la Luz lives in the Bronx.
Showtimes are at 7:30 pm & 9:00 pm. Tickets: $20 advance / $25 day of show. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit https://www.zincjazz.com.
