DANGEROUS RHYTHMS: Q & A with Caridad De La Luz
Caridad De La Luz, a proud product of the Bronx, has been performing in NYC for more than twenty years. Primarily as La Bruja, a stage persona she created to present her spoken word poetry, comedy, and various musical shows, she has become an ambassador for Boricua culture in her native city. Her upcoming tribute to La Lupe (Lupe Victoria Yolí Raymond) is a reprise and expansion of a similar tribute she performed at the Caribbean Cultural Center in 2017. T.J. English, curator and host of the Dangerous Rhythms Latin Jazz series, caught up with Caridad at the restaurant Caravan of Dreams in the East Village. They were joined by Kelson, Caridad’s twenty-year-old son.
