About the Event
Mario Cancel-Bigay is a Puerto Rican singer-songwriter, poet, and ethnomusicologist. He is an expert on the Puerto Rican national guitar, the cuatro, which he has been playing for 25 years. His songs, composed in Spanish and English, are influenced by Latin American nueva canción, Puerto Rican jíbaro (peasant) music, rock, jazz, blues, and American protest music. Often, Mario sings poems that he sets music to. His lyrics address anticolonialism, social justice and global south solidarity, in addition to questioning gender constructs and celebrating Afro-Caribbean legacies.
Said Pete Seeger: "Judy is a wonderful singer and musician. No two programs that she gives are the same. Judy is always thinking how to find the right phrase, the right song to hit the nail right on the head, to shoot the arrow straight to the heart of the matter." Judy has performed for the UN, festivals, universities, concert halls, and events for justice in 49 states and 13 countries. Judy has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Odetta, Richie Havens, Harry Belafonte, Whoopi Goldberg, Sweet Honey in The Rock, Suzanne Vega, the Indigo Girls, Meryl Streep, and James Earl Jones.
