Join us for a night of folklore, storytelling, arte y amor, the poetry 
of struggle bringing histories to life, and life to our circles of song.

      featuring ReynaLiz Herrera <http://youtu.be/RkeZxzNII-w>

*Saturday, June 15, 2013, 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

@Upstairs at TecsChange *, 46 Bennington St., East Boston, MA 
Just blocks from the Maverick & Airport stops on the Blue Line.  
(Directions below,)

A Peña is a gathering of musicians, artists, and friends who come to 
share their work and to play together. Peñas take historical root from 
Chilean social gatherings during the 60s and early 70s that expressed 
the spirit of creativity and resistance in melody, poems, and artwork 
under a brutally repressive regime. Though they exist throughout the 
Spanish-speaking world, they came into fashion in Latin America with the 
Nueva Trova musical movement that ran in tandem with the revolutions of 
the day. In some places the term 'tertulia' is used, where in English we 
don't have an equivalent word. (Open Mic implies a certain formality and 
performance that doesn't quite fit this atmosphere.)
Peñas are encouraged to bring your own stories, songs, poems, or artwork 
to share. Please bring your songs, bring your verse, in whatever 
language or on whatever instrument.

Each peña hosted by e5 will be dedicated to the great tradition of 
someone who fought with the instrument of song and the spirit that 
defied borders. Please accompany us at our events with live music and 
ample nylon-string guitars.
