with texts by Jose Torres Tama
and sound design by Billy Atwell

This word and music collaboration combines the surreal and hallucinogenic soundscapes created by multi-instrumentalist Billy Atwell with the politically charged performance texts and spoken word poems of Jose Torres Tama. "American Mantra" is a Spanglish music drive-by that rifles on media as religion, corporate gentrification, censorship and blind nationalism, the Latino immigrant experience and life under BeelzeBush Junior--executed with sardonic humor and new millennium aesthetics.
