REVIEWS OF El DAVÍD’S POETRY:
“The poetry of El Davíd is one of resistance. A spiritual war cry replete with the drums of his ancestors and the sangre of identity. With a machete in hand, this Outlaw of Poetry carves out the necessary space to exist on its own terms.” – Maria Rodriguez
“Merging the Avant-guard with the grit of New York City soundscape, El Davíd’s poems coalesce form and function demanding his words be read aloud.” – Peggy Robles-Alvarado
For 2 years straight, month after month, as a way to create and give to the people, Smokin’ Word Open Mic Series featured poets, musicians, and artists of all walks of life, whose art carries a message for the people. The ELKAT team (El Davíd & Katalina Rodriguez) collaborated with each featured artist to create a unique production for the showcased artist, setting a different tone from month-to-month.
On Friday, April 14, 2017, 7:00pm, all Smokin’ Word Open Mic Series’ family and friends are invited to SHOW UP for the people who brought you the HOTTEST free spoken word poetry showcase and open mics in the boogie down Bronx.
