El Sexteto De La Salsa

To be honored in Mayaguez Puerto Rico is beyond category. Luis Chaluisan Salsa Magazine WEPA!

A TTo be honored is one thing. But to be honored in the land of our family (Borinquen) particularly in our hometown of Mayaguez is the greatest accolade I receive in my life. It is better than a Grammy, an Academy Award, an Emmy and even a Pulitizer. My life is about discovery and in the week I spend in Mayaguez I witness so much talent that I am humbled to be declared “un hijo de Mayaguez” a day after I meet one of the island’s treasures, Shorty Castro del Barrio Paris, while he is honored. A pure inspiration for me as a dancer, singer, actor, poet and comedian. And it is all because of my parents que son del Barrio Balboa y La Quinta.  Thank you for honoring my work Sociedad Autentica De Coleccionistas Musica Popular Oeste De P.R.

Salsa Magazine on the road with Maria Hernandez
“I am ready to begin my trip to Colombia and Ecuador to meet with our clients and fans of “Salsa Magazine” I am also meeting with a shaman to bless our group. Shamanism is a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to encounter and interact with the spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world. A shaman is a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits, who typically enters into a trance state during a ritual, and practices divination and healing.
Estoy lista para comenzar mi viaje a Colombia y Ecuador para cumplir con nuestros clientes y fanaticos de “Salsa Magazine” Yo también voy a visitar con un chamán para bendecir a nuestro grupo. El chamanismo es una práctica que implica un practicante alcanzar estados alterados de conciencia con el fin de encontrar e interactuar con el mundo de los espíritus y canalizar estas energías trascendentales en este mundo. Un chamán es una persona considera que tiene acceso a, y su influencia en el mundo de los espíritus benévolos y malévolos, que normalmente entra en un estado de trance durante un ritual, y practique la adivinación y la curación.”

“It is an edgy take on a unique slice of Latino culture, presented with a very personal perspective.”
Tom Zapiecki Production Manager at WBGU-TV
“Measured yet expressive, delivered with a weight and authority”
Toledo Blade community news WBGU-FM
“Among all the cookie cutters I’ve worked with over the years, Luis Chaluisan is truly unique.”

“It’s all the things that Luis Chaluisan is: infectious, deep, passionate, life-loving, beyond brilliant.”

Critical Reviews of Luis Chaluisan’s Work:
“Let the man talk to you for a half hour about his life and he’ll make Jack Kerouac look like Emily Dickinson.” Adam Klasfeld – Theater Mania
“Luis Chaluisan is a born storyteller. His gift for capturing the heart and soul of each character he portrays is not only convincing, but also inspiring. The show is full of humor, insight, poetry, and Puerto Rican pride. Chaluisan’s smooth-talking narrator introduces the various vignettes with articulate wit and wisdom. One is a heartfelt homage to the original poets of the Nuyorican venue. His unique voice as a writer clearly displays his poetic influences”
Elias Stimac – Backstage
“In an era when spoken-word poetry has carved out a niche in slam competitions and even on HBO’s Def Poetry, Chaluisan’s work is old- school – often as literate as it is lyrical, stuffed with images drawn from New York City life. Clem Richardson, NY Daily News –NY Daily News”
Clem Richardson – NY Daily News
“An exceptional surprise. Juan Moreno, Diario La Prensa –Diario La Prensa”
Juan Moreno – Diario La Prensa
“El Extreme was the most innovative combo that I heard cranking out a compelling blast of pure fun that smashed the barrier between funk, rap, jazz and blues. They call their music “Psychotic Latin Blues,” and that’s exactly what tey sounded like- a great big Captain Beefheart-meets Sun Ra in Puerto Rico Jam. EDITOR & PUBLISHER Stephen Leon Metroland Albany NY”
Stephen Leon – Metroland
“Poet Performer recognized for groundbreaking work. Performing since the 1970’s Chaluisan, a Wakefield resident, says he is honored by the recent recognition of his work … but says “My goal has been to develop the art form and bring it to people who generally don’t see it.”” Noah Fowle – BX TIMES
“I think Spic Chic is strong stuff, right in the Nuyorican tradition. Poems and then stories back into poems that are often emotionally moving. A self exploration in a non-chronological history consistent in language and point of view, it is clearly a highly personalized work that is successful in the Nuyorican free-style genre and successful in the broader sense as well. David Henderson, author, ‘Scuse Me While I Kiss The Sky: Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child”
David Henderson – Steve Cannon’s A Gathering Of The Tribes Reviews
“Luis Chaluisan you have done so much for salsa music keeping it in the eyes and ears of so many. Your poems, music reviews and general news reach the masses and you shed light on the new, when people thought it was lost.” Jose Vazquez-Cofresi – Orquesta SCC
