About Capicu Poetry
First things first.. what does Capicu mean? In the game of Dominos, el Capicu is a very special winning piece that covers all ends, it is the ultimate finishing move. Any piece can become the Capicu, with the right mixture of skill and fate. The Fichas (as dominos are sometimes called) is often slammed down on the table for emphasis, in celebration!
The Capicu Poetry Series is a collaboration between the creators of EspacioLatino (on MySpace) and SofritoForYourSoul.com, also supported by some of NYC’s most powerful poetry artists, including some of the elders from Nuyorican Poets Cafe. We welcome all styles and poets, though it is themed around our Nuyorican origins.
Ultimately, our goal is to develop the event to the point where it is a place where all kind of urban artists can play, paint, or otherwise express themselves.
Currently on hiatus, The Capicu Poetry Series is currently being developed to encompass different forms of cultural expression and to expand the reach of our mission nationwide. The Poetry Series is a smaller piece of a bigger puzzle, which will include charity work and community events, as our network grows and people welcome the idea of solidarity.
The explosion of niche, social media is a massive cultural phenomenon. Blogging, social networking and video sharing are changing the face of the print and television industries. Similarly, the most fundamental impact on the $40b radio industry may arise from the social radio movement, which allows anyone, anywhere to broadcast or listen to radio.
