Los Delicados: Poetas del Sol 25th Anniversary Show
Sat, November 20, 2021 – Eventbrite Site
Once called heathens. Known to shock and vibe on congas with poetry. “A post modern Last Poets meets Perez-Prado,” Los Delicados combine the subversive power of music, theater, and poetry into a new genre.”
Join Los Delicados as they celebrate 25 years of poetic lo-cura as innovators of Latino Spoken Word with special guests Juan Felipe Herrera, Margarita Luna Robles, Arlene Biala and Jimmy Biala, Grito Serpentino, Baktun-12, Tim Z. Hernandez, Amalia Ortiz, Adrian Arancibia and more.
Founded in 1996 in San Francisco’s Mission District, Los Delicados are the leading Latino spoken word troupe. Comprised of three writers, Norman Antonio Zelaya, Darren J. de Leon, and Paul S. Flores, they come from three different California experiences – Nicoya in San Francisco, Xicano in San Bernardino, and Cuban/Mexican in the borderlands of San Diego – and took the national spoken word scene by storm with their unique Word Descarga style, yet to be replicated. In 2001 they released “Word Descarga” on Calaca Press and their play “Guayaberas By The Pound” has been taught in college campus classrooms throughout the country.
