Hurray for the Riff Raff: The Body Electric

Alynda Lee Segarra of Puerto Rican descent hailing from NYC once said "the minute I could take the subway by myself, I headed to the Lower East Side because I knew that's where all the weirdos were, where all the punks were. I was always taking an hour subway ride out there. And that's really where I feel like I grew up because I spent so much of my time there—all of my friends were there. That's where I learned a lot about New York and about the world, really." One of the songs below is in reference to the Walt Whitman poem "I sing the body electric" a well known piece of poetic genius. Alynda is a soft spoken master of modern folk.
