Puente Drum Circle + Radio SY Mulmenyah
When COVID19 came and Southwestern College (SWC) switched to remote education in the Spring of 2020, Professor-Poeta-Musician Francisco J. Bustos and students from SWC Puente Project, San Ysidro Mulmenyah, Poets and writers from an online Creative Writing class (English 120), Community, and SWC Corazón Allies came together via Zoom on Tuesday nights at 8 pm, (Zoom meeting ID: 980 7336 3349 ) , with the goal of connecting, supporting each other, building community, sharing story, inspiring creativity and expression as well as supporting poetry, music, and the arts, with many special guests sharing story and work, through the summer and winter break as well.
During the 2nd hour, “The B-Sides,” the group writes poems “a la brava/on the fly,” writing in community and reciprocity (in Mulmenyah) to the sound of drum and sounds, creating a healing and safe space and working to put together a poetry anthology when the pandemic ends.
Poets include Anna Lee Sanchez, Christian Sanchez, Claire Accomando, John Martinez, Sonia Gutierrez, Molly Grace McHargue, Michael James Lundell, and more…
All corazón allies are welcome to join. An open mic follows.
