Excited and honored to be playing at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe this Friday September 12, an iconic venue that has so much importance to me personally and to our community in general. Opened by a group of Nuyoricans that included Miguel Algarin ,Tato Laviera, Rev. Pedro Pietri, Shorty Bon Bon, Sandra Maria Esteves, Papoleto Melendez and Mr. Short Eyes-Miguel Piñero, the Nuyorican has been home to decades of masters.
Continuing in that tradition Safiya Martinez’s ( @SafiyaMartinez ) brings her one woman show to the Nuyorican.
Safiya Martinez was raised in the Lower East Side. The performer and educator turned playwright and actress was born to a Puerto Rican and Russian-Jewish mother (a classically trained dancer) and African-American father (a jazz musician). Her neighborhood, an authentic place where she was first exposed to experience and class mash-ups, different languages and accents, both spoken and physical, served as Martinez’ earliest inspiration. Growing up within such an artistically infused home in this humble yet vibrant and un-contrived melting pot, it was no surprise Martinez would have a unique take on life – a perspective that would surely color her distinct performance and writing style.
So You Can Hear Me is a powerful solo show about one first-year teachers’ journey towards womanhood while negotiating the terms of working in public service in the South Bronx. The work is full of humanizing narratives that depict a world of vulnerability, bravery, tenderness and love.”
Presented by La Gerencia ( @LaGerenciaInc ), who have been doing an amazing job in curating some of the best cultural events New York City. (at Nuyorican Poets Cafe)
Closing off an amazing Summer..this sign says it all. #nyc #unveranoennuevayork (at Uptown NYC)

Carlos Ramos y Su Orquesta Fuego’s LP “Tecato” was to be the soundtrack to a never-released movie of the same name. Tecato—slang for a heroin addict—speaks to the emerging madness that was beginning to bubble in the streets of Nueva York as the economic and social decay that would give birth to Hip-Hop in a few years began its reign.
The record embodies the mixture of chaos and beauty that was experienced in the streets as first generation Nuyoricans were merging the rhythms and realities of their Island-born parents with the energy and sounds of New York City. The music of this spectacular soundtrack, which was recorded in one take, mixes Guaguanco, Soul, Psychedelic Rock and Santeria.
Imagine standing on the corner of 116th and Lexington in the middle of July, while from every window there is a different sound blasting. That is what Carlos Ramos y Su Orquesta Fuego sounds and feels like.
Sociedad Records is honored to release “Candelo” and “Lightning & Flash” from this incredible LP as its inaugural release. Remastered and released as a double-sided single for the first time, these two diverse & heavy sounds are an automatic collector’s piece.
A1 : Candelo
B1 : Lightning & Flash
