The English and French issue of Josefina Baez´s Comrade bliss, Ain´t playing. Exquisitely translated by Sophie Mariñez. Photos by Dulcina Abreu.
Comrade Bliss ain´t playing is the performance poetry of an urban devotee.
The work is an intimate journey dressed up with a beautiful vulnerability, taking us to meet her one and only real love, passing thru contradictions and blessings and leaving us at the beginning of sound.
