4/20/2011 Radio Pocho


"Palabristas: Word Slingers" On this episode of RP we're visited by Chican@/Latin@ spoken word collective Palabristas. A haiku battle breaks out throughout the show and a guest DJ joins the Pocho crew to spin some tunes...Sir Mex-A-Lot.

We have spoken word performances by Rodrigo Sanchez Chavarria, Larry Lucio and Emmanuelle Ortiz as well as an interview by New York based poet Brandon Lacy Campos. Keep track of this great collective at Palabrista.org

And as always we have the tunes that make spring bloom.
