RGB: Batey Macorix

RGB features commissioned poetry text by author Nelly Rosario and sound design by composer Desmar Guevara--two artists who interrogate mainstream Latino ambivalence towards African heritage. In response to this divide, RGB remixes two Afro-Dominican dance and music traditions, Gagá and Guloya, thereby exploring Afro-Latino identity, border zones, transnational migration, and 'otherness' in the Americas and beyond. Our use of multimedia creates resonance among diverse audiences while reflecting contemporary, immigrant, and diasporic narratives. RGB’s themes and forms (dance, music, text) expand on the body of work I have been creating for the past decade.
