¿Quien somos? We are a grassroots house of poetry and performing arts in New York City, formed in Brooklyn. Founded in March 2007
Capicu has already made it’s presence known in NY by featuring both veteran as well as up and coming performers of spoken word/ slam poetry, prominent visual artists, up and coming entrepreneurs, comedians and select musical guests.
We’re a partnership between the cutting edge event coordinator http://www.facebook.com/PaPoSwiggity and established online entity SofritoForYourSoul.com (http://www.facebook.com/UrbanJibaro), also supported by some of NYC’s most powerful artists & musicians including some of the elders from Nuyorican Poets Cafe.
We welcome all styles and poets, though our showcase is themed around our Nuyorican origins. We a develop open mic and featured artists events all across NYC and Long Island. We also have a bi-weekly online radio show for the global community, here you can listen to some of our archived shows: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/radiocapicu.
Our mantra is that we educate & entertain, in order to culturally enrich and empower our neighborhoods. Here is a rundown of some of our proudest moments.
