ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Resolana Luz, or Light from Darkness, is a free-admission, all-welcome public celebration event and a program of poetry, music and video presented on a voluntary public-service basis by some of our community’s prominent performing artists. The event and program is a response to the many recent troubles and losses, including violent deaths in our community and in our world at large. This program is offered to the public by artists in hopes of inspiring hope and bringing light while acknowledging the darkness, stress and near-despair generated by these losses, and in hopes of peace in this time of war.
This program, which is the fourth in an ongoing series of Resolana programs organized by Bill Nevins at South Broadway Cultural Center, is made possible by the voluntary contribution of performing and creative talent by participating artists and by generous support from the City of Albuquerque, !filmABQ and the South Broadway Cultural Center.
The program will be hosted and MCed by Inaugural Albuquerque Poet Laureate Hakim Bellamy.
Scheduled performers are Ludella Awad, Hakim Bellamy, Billy Brown, Marcial Delgado, Ebony Isis Booth, Liza Wolf Francis, Larry Goodell, Natachee Momaday Gray, Maria Leyba, Richard Malcolm, Don McIver, Bill Nevins, Mitch Rayes, Paula Amar Schwartz, Nkazi Sinandile, R. B. Bob Warren, with music performed by Jeannie Allen, Harlow Pinson and Issa Malluf and a video, “Love Letter to ABQ” created and narrated by City Poet Laureate Jessica Helen Lopez featuring music by !Reviva!
The event is tonight from 7pm to 9pm at the John Lewis Theatre, South Broadway Cultural Center. An after party will follow at The Draft Station on Central Ave NW near 16th St NW.
