the work “defying the silence” was born as an album made in 2022 and 2023, choosing poems from my previous poetry books inspiring musical compositions by Katsu Djin, the artistic name of my son Gabriel Cuevas. Even if a book with the poems used in the album was published, the musical-poetry collaboration is the purpose of this work.
these audios are available on online platforms (apple music, spotify, etc.). Here we present the work: the audios and the texts. This work was made originally in Spanish; but the poems in English are not literal translations, they are poems using the same themes, rewritten with my experience as a migrant in the United States.
from the audios, videos are being developed and they too willl be part of the work.
Defying Silence by the poet and writer Hugo Cuevas-Mohr is both available in book and music album form, from Amazon, as well as available to listen in Spotify, Apple Music and many other music sites.
