LA DIVA—LA LUPE!

Three cultural organizations celebrate the Afro-Latina, the Afro Cuban Diaspora woman called “La Lupe.” The creative interpretive form of La Lupe spoke to the power of self-realization and power of her unique voice – her unique presence. The talent of this powerhouse known as La Lupe “La Yiyiyi” appeared on stage, some have said before her time and others because of the time, open the pathways for the transformative articulation of today’s African descendant women on stage and in the world.

Caridad de La Luz “La Bruja,” Nina Rodriguez and Calma Carmona, direct from Puerto Rico, will travel back in time to the beginning of La Lupe’s Cuban recordings,made possible by Fania Records” with special guest Johnny “Dandy” Rodriguez, Mambo Legends, member of the Tito Puente Orchestra.
