LOUD! (Living Opera, Understanding Diversity) is designed to connect communities near and far through discussions and performances via a focus on diverse cross-sections – with a particular focus on the BIPOC community, showcasing arts and culture in the Southwest, and highlighting stories that are focused on music and grounded in their sometimes-surprising connections to the world of opera.
This episode includes a performance by Hoop Dancer, Tony Duncan, accompanied by guitarist, Darrin Yazzie, and drummer, Jeremy Meyers, plus an interview and performance of a piece entitled “You I Am – My Town” by Hakim Bellamy, Inaugural Poet Laureate of Albuquerque from 2012-2014.
