I am a child of the Americas,
a light-skinned mestiza of the Caribbean,
a child of many diaspora, born into this continent at a crossroads.
I am a U.S. Puerto Rican Jew,
a product of the ghettos of New York I have never known.

a flashing knife blade of crystal, my tool, my craft.
I am Caribeña, island grown. Spanish is my flesh,
Ripples from my tongue, lodges in my hips:
the language of garlic and mangoes,
the singing of poetry, the flying gestures of my hands.

I was born at the crossroads and I am whole.

I am here to ask for your help.
We need a drummer.
Ours informed us the other night that she can no longer devote as much time as before to the band and that she needs to focus on her own personal goals. We respect that and wish her the best of luck in her endeavors.
That being said, she has agreed to finish up the album with us and play a show in May. After May we will need a new drummer, especially for the summer tour in August.
The requirements are the following:
(Girls and feminine persons strongly encouraged to audition!)
If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our Facebook.
Thank you for your time.
