REVOLUTIONARY ASIAN-LATIN-INDIO MUSIC AND POETRY

Thursday, March 17, 7:30 pm
New College Theater, 777 Valencia Street, San Francisco

Solo baritone sax by Fred Ho and Poetry by Raul Salinas and Magdalena Gomez

"Fred Ho and Raul Salinas were THE absolute highlight of this year's [2004] MELUS (Multi-Ethnic Literatures in the U.S.) conference!" - Professor James Smethurst, University of Massachusetts-Amherst W.E.B. DuBois Department of Afro-American Studies.

"Poet Magdalena Gomez and musician Fred Ho challenged Oberlin audiences with a fierce representation of history and the ways that music and poetry can shock people into thought." - DeShaun Sneed, review of Ho-Gomez performance at Oberlin College.

Raul Salinas, Xicanindio elder poet and human rights activist, is director of Resistencia Bookstore/Casa de Red Salmon Press, a literary venue and arts center in Austin, Texas. Co-founder of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, he is author of Viaje/Trip, East of the Freeway, and Un Trip Through the Mind Jail, plus the forthcoming Indio Trails: A Xicano Odyssey through Indian Country (Wings Press), and two spoken word CDs.

Magdalena Gomez, performance poet, playwright, and cultural worker, entered the New York poetry scene while still in high school, reading at such classic venues as Cafe Wha?, the Speakeasy, the Village Gate, and Cedar Tavern. Long associated with the Nuyorican Poets scene, her recent works include the off-Broadway play Lobster Face, and the spoken word CD Amaxonia.

Fred Ho, revolutionary Chinese American baritone saxophonist, composer, activist, and writer, is co-editor with Bill V. Mullen of the forthcoming Afro Asia: Revolutionary Political and Cultural Connections Between African and Asian Americans (Duke) and leader on many recordings.
