A few weeks ago, I wrote about Denton’s Immigrant Punk, the music moniker of Rocio Aranda. She fuses folk and hip-hop and social messages in her tunes. She came to Texas with her family from Mexico and, with national focus on immigration reform, not to mention what’s happening in Arizona, it’s easy to figure this is something that speaks to her.
Here, she took footage of her last show at Cool Beans in Denton performing “Shape of Hope” and mashed it up with footage from the recent MegaMarch that took place in Dallas. The video is “dedicated to the immigrant in all of us.”
Immigrant Punk is next slated to perform in Florida at St. Pete Pride, St. Petersburg’s Pride Festival, on June 26.
