Episode 35: Rubí Orozco Santos
On this episode, we welcome Rubí Orozco Santos into the studio. We discuss her book of poetry Inventos Mios(2018) which was supported through a grant from the City of El Paso's Museums and Cultural Affairs Department(MCAD), through its Artist Incubator Program (AIP). She discusses the interviews, observations, and research that went into writing the book, plus all the people who put in time and work into the final product.
We also discuss her work in ancestral health, community building, Son Jorocho, instagram challenges, and much more. From the book, Rubí reads the poems "Ingredients" and "Poem About The Ingenuity of Husbands," plus plays a little bit of her jarana.
Hosted by Richie David Marrufo, project director of The Barbed Wire Open Mic Series.
