WE ARE…

we_are_blog

 

WE ARE
the composers, the poets, the painters
the mask-makers, the singer-songwriters,
the playwrights, the sculptors

WE ARE
the destitute and the hungry
the starving musicians
the political prisoners
the climate-justice activists and
educators

WE ARE
the farmers in Veracruz
working from the crack of down to feed their
families

WE ARE
the music of the stars
flooding your senses
before dying of dehydration
crossing the Arizona desert

WE ARE
the silence after the bombs
the dust that never settles
the 43 students brutally murdered this
month by the corrupt government of
Guerrero, for their peaceful protest

WE ARE
a cultural bridge between
Veracruz and New York
between Saint Petersburg and La Havana
between your gut and our collective
conscience

WE ARE
the music creators, the sound instigators
the truth-seeking collective of universal
integrity and non-denominational
inclusiveness also known as
VILLALOBOS BROTHERS
