About Raúl Sánchez: Raúl Sánchez is an author and mentor of bilingual poetry. His cultural background allows him to use passages from his early life in México City and apply the lessons learned in his work. Mentoring in the schools has been essential to his poetic growth because as he put it “The youth see the world differently than him,” therefore he learns from their outlook. Raúl is an avid spiral thinker, driving in a straight line then suddenly turning left or right, but never loosing the reader in the detour. Raúl is a self-taught poet who keeps on writing, teaching, helping the youth, and reading in public, allowing his voice to carry the words like dandelion fuzzies into the ears of those who listen.

About Trío Guadalevín: Trío Guadalevín took shape in 2014 when three distinct musicians gathered to explore a common interest: musical connections between Mexico and the Mediterranean. Employing a wealth of instruments and techniques the trio explores and often reimagines the musical dialogue between Indigenous, European and African cultures, which define Latin American identity. The ensemble takes a fresh, innovative approach to music with deep roots: from the son huasteco and son jarocho of Mexico, to Afro-Oaxacan music, Sephardic Jewish melodies, Spanish fandangos and xácaras, Arab-Andalusian song and Italian ciaccona and tarantella.  Instruments including the guitar, oud, theorbo, baroque guitar, vihuela, jarana, quinta huapanguera, harp, bendir, riqq, bombo, pandero cuadrado, pandereta, teponatzli, cajón and more.  

About Milvia Pacheco: Milvia Berenice Pacheco Salvatierra is an Afrolatina artist, performer, choreographer, bodyworker, poet, mother, and Community Organizer. MÁS (Movimiento Afrolatino Seattle) is the platform where she is able to actualize and continue her empowerment work both as an artist and an organizer.
