Bank Street Blues Bilingual (BSBB) is a group of local musicians, teachers, video artists and scholars. BSBB uses music and discussion to explore Latino culture and language, issues of social justice and multi-ethnic populations, art in our private lives and as a catalyst for systemic social change and creating safe spaces for communication and artistic expression for all social groups.
“For everyone involved in this project, including community organizations and institutions, CTH’s decision to fund us has brought great hope,” shared Norwich teacher and BSBB member, Resu Espinosa-Frink. “In the words of composer Charles Frink, ‘Music is more than entertainment: it has moral value because of the ideas we transmit through it. Hope hinges on a fundamental change of direction and of heart — the revival of local organizations and community feeling.’ Thank you for the opportunity given to us to continue this work.”
