Blitz Buzz

To promote BLITZ, Arturo O’Farrill and Casita Maria will be partnered with BronxNet to produce BLITZ Buzz, a series of online webisodes. Filmed on-site at the same local South Bronx public spaces and businesses as full Blitz performances, BLITZ Buzz will feature interviews by BLITZ “mentor-ees” Casita youth of each BLITZ ensemble member and one of the collaborating artists. Unscripted and fun – anything can happen during BLITZ Buzz! Impromptu jazz fusion, uncensored, real conversations and perhaps a spontaneous dish of arroz con habicuelas or an even a improv haircut or tattoo.
