4/20: Palabristas & Emmanuel Ortiz on Radio Pocho

On this edition of Radio Pocho we bring you some of the best Latin@ word slingers from the Twin Cities and beyond. And no we're not referring to trash talking. We mean spoken palabra ese. Special guests in the studio this evening will include Rodrigo Sanchez-Chavarria and Larry Lucio of the spoken word collective Palabristas. Also joining us and making his return to the Twin Cities after a pilgrimage to Indiana, is the talented poet Emmanuel Ortiz. On the phone joining us from all the way in New York City will be another member of Palabristas, Brandon Lacy Campos. As always our guests will be given an opportunity to share their musical influences with us so stay tuned por que va estar chingon.

Also we'll be giving away a pair of FREE TICKETS to the 4/27 Omar Sosa show at the Dakota Jazz Club live on the air. Be sure to tune in.
