Richard Rios "Songs of The Barrio" - A Reading of His Poem: 'Para Los Tr...
"Para Los Tres Grandes" is a tribute to three of Mexico's greatest artists and muralists, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jose Clemente Orozco. Rios's performance poetry is powerful. In honoring the three great artists, he takes the listener on a dark and shameful journey into the history of our neighbor to the south. In reality, Rios takes us on a dark and shameful journey into the history of mankind. The finish is truly maginficent. This poem can be found in Richard Rios's book Songs From the Barrio. Orale, Senor Rios!
