Caridad De La Luz is a Bronx-born poet/actor/activist known as LA BRUJA, considered one of America's leading spoken word artists. She is a renaissance woman, NY Times called her "a Juggernaut" after her 2009 run of her musical Boogie Rican Blvd. at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater. Her music has crossed over internationally with her debut album "Brujalicious" available on iTunes. Known for her captivating performance on Russell Simmons' HBO Def Poetry Jam. She is the Founder of the Latinas 4 Life movement and is a Board member of Voices UnBroken. She believes the power of word helps create positive change in the lives of countless inner-city youth and has taught poetry workshops for over 13 years to help build a foundation for self-expression and empowerment.
Conscious is an artist of many facets. A lateral thinker that not only contemplates outside of the boxes that society attempts to create for him, but reshapes them to fabricate art in multiple forms. For more info, please check out his site: http://iareconscious.com/
