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." Gerry Brooks Anchor news at 6, and 11 p.m WVIT-NBC CT. "It's all the things that Luis Chaluisan is: infectious, deep, passionate, life-loving, beyond brilliant." Gary Lee Washington Post Being Submitted To: International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival Rincon International Film Festival Bogot Short Film Festival / Festival de Cortos de Bogot -...(WORLDWIDE SALSA EXPLOSION) Sundance Film Festival Tribeca Film Festival 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 %#&@$!inson." 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 plus.google.com/u/0/+LuisChalu isan/posts
