A rhythmic debut poetry collection powered by the pulse of the Caribbean, Cantos to Blood & Honey presents a synthesis of Afro-Caribbean, Hispanic, and North American mythology, language, and aesthetics. Adrian Castro, an Afro-Latino performance poet, explores within this dance issues of migration, cultural continuity, memory, and history.
Articulating the search for a cohesive Afro-Caribbean-American identity, Castro honors myth on one hand and history on the other. He addresses the migratory experience from Africa to the Caribbean to North America and the eventual clash of cultures. Meanwhile, a section of prose poems deals with ancestors past and present.
