The Canción Cannibal Cabaret

Hangin’ out with Juan, Amalia Leticia Ortiz & Kip Austin Hinton—going over the final edits for THE CANCIÓN CANNIBAL CABARET. Happy to be working on this project & can’t wait to see this beautiful book in print.

Amalia Ortiz‘s The Canción Cannibal Cabaret is a collection of post-apocalyptic prose poems and poem songs “cannibalizing” knowledge from before the fall of civilization. In performance, it is a Xicanx punk rock musical—dedicated “To all the revolutionaries…los rasquaches—all those artists who rose from the filthy and un-loved fringes to create their own meaning…”

We’re getting ready to book the fall/spring tour—email Juan Tejeda for more info at editors@aztlanlibrepress.com.
