The latest episode of the online tv chat show “Rapping with Leiberman”, hosted by SiriusXM’s Jon Leiberman, has just been broadcast. The new series invites rappers, dj’s & producers to discuss the latest news issues of the day together with providing updates of their own careers

His latest guest is the Bronx’s actress, poet, community activist, musician and rapper Caridad de la Luz, aka La Bruja.

The term “artist” is often over used, but in this case it’s barely adequate. Probably one of the reasons the Bronx Music Heritage Centre presented her with the accolade recently of “Bronx Living Legend”

Born to Puerto Rican parents and brought up in the Bronx, she gained recognition for her early performances at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe before delivering a renowned performance of the self penned “WTC” on HBO’s Russell Simmon’s Def Poetry Jam in 2002 reflecting on events of 9/11.

Her acting career which has seen her perform in many tv and stage plays, including her own “Boogie Rican Blvd” took off with her performance as “Cuca” in Spike Lee’s “Bamboozled”. She then released her album “Brujalicious” in 2006 mixed by DJ Precision of the X-Executioners and featuring among others Joell Ortiz, Chingo Bling, Tony Touch, Jadakiss and The Jungle Brothers. She performed in the UK and Germany in support of the release including a performance in London on the same billing as Amerie.

Her dedication to helping and empowering youth and women saw her involved in various organizations including the setting up of Latinas4Life and providing poetry workshops in schools, youth centres and jails. During the interview which touches upon Indiana’s policy of providing clean needles to combat AIDS, she compares that to the work she did for a project in Hunts Point.

Similarly on the subject of the false Virginia University rape allegation made by Rolling Stone Magazine, her work with various different women’s assistance programmes allows her to relate the potential consequences for women with this kind of story, and also allows her to speak with authority on the subjects of the gender wage gap and Hillary Clinton’s chances of becoming president given recent issues raised regarding her campaign funding.

Other subjects tackled include legalization of marijuana, the death penalty for the Boston Bomber….and her thoughts on the new Star Wars film…..

Having performed a few bars live, La Bruja then speaks about her current projects including appearing in the musical “Betsy”, stage play Shadowlands and her plans to record a tribute album to the late Cuban singer-songwriter Celina Gonzalez
