About me:I'm an author and singer-songwriter, celebrating that I just completed my debut CD with Ojos de Sofia titled Las 7 salves de La Magdalena. The CD release will be September 10, 2010, 7pm, at St. Mark's Church (East Village, NYC). More info on Raquel Z. Rivera and Ojos de Sofia: www.myspace.com/ojosdesofia.
CDs and downloads for sale at www.cdbaby.com. Downloads also for sale at www.digstation.com, iTunes and Amazon.
I'm also the author of New York Ricans from the Hip Hop Zone (2003) and co-editor of the anthology titled Reggaeton published by Duke University Press in 2009.
A freelance journalist, my articles have been published in many magazines and newspapers, among these: Vibe, One World, Urban Latino, In the House Magazine, El Diario/La Prensa, Hoy, The San Juan Star, El Nuevo Dia and Claridad.
I'm hard at work on my first novel, a breakup story set to the sounds of Caribbean roots music, hip hop and reggaeton. As a singer/songwriter, I'm also a member of bomba group Alma Moyó, and a founding and ex-member of Boricua roots music group Yerbabuena and of the all-women's bomba and salve group Yaya.
I've taught courses in Sociology, Anthropology, Africana and Latino Studies at Columbia University, Hunter College and Tufts University. I am currently an affiliated scholar at the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College.
