Coachella Valley Poets Perform Juan Felipe Herrera’s Work

08 Aug Coachella Valley Poets Perform Juan Felipe Herrera’s Work

”Crisalida 
By Moises Huerta

We had a wonderful celebration for Juan Felipe Herrera on Friday June 19th at 7pm at Coachella Valley Arts Center in Indio, Ca. Yes, there are a few blogs about that night but they are all a little different so please feel free to enjoy them all.






As part of the celebration many poets were invited to share their poetry on the condition that they take time to honor Mr. Herrera by first performing one of his works. Many jumped at the chance and here are some of the entrants and their performances.

 Francisco Rodriguez, a former student of Juan Felipe Herrera, was the first to open the event with some friendly banter. The poem was even better.

 Mario “Giant” Garcia took Herrera’s words & reworked them to a hip hop beat. It was great! 
Other performer have been added on a separate blog.
