***I am amazed by the turn out for BRUJA by Vanessa Sanchez / La Mezcla at East Side Arts Alliance. I feel honored to have had such chignona performers as Las Bomberas, Bien Firme, Chulita Vinyl Club and the women of Pachuquismo (La Mezcla) holding it down on stage; not only putting on a powerful show, but also telling the story of the Chicana/Latina experience and representing for Mujeres of Color in percussion and dance. Muchas gracias to the East Side staff, Dancers’ Group and Akonadi Foundation for making things happen and continuing to support local artists. Thank you to everyone who came out, who sent bendiciones, who helped spread the word, who performed and who held everything down behind the scenes; such an amazing community! Having a long time vision successfully come to life and receive such amazing support (and a packed house) is beyond words. Thank you for all the love.
