About


"Life In A New World" is an original TV magazine designed to engage and inform New York's foreign-born community and anyone interested in the trends of our increasingly global neighborhoods. From the journey of re-launching a life in the US, to achieving success at all levels of society and economic enterprise, the show features newcomers, as well as businesspeople, artists, experts and policy makers to tell the story of who we are as a nation of dreamers and doers. The show was created by writer-producer Tiziana Rinaldi, who's also the host. For more information visit… Lifeinanewworld.com.


The Young Roots Performance Series at Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture showcases emerging artists experimenting with the artistic roots of Afro-Latino traditions to create new branches that reach into the future. The series was made possible by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation’s highly selective New York City Cultural Innovation Fund, which supports creativity and the arts, with an emphasis on innovation.

In May of 2011, The Young Roots Performance Series presented The Mermaid’s Feet, a collaborative effort between East Harlem-based vocalists Catarina dos Santos and Raquel Z. Rivera who draw on roots music of the Afro-Ibero-American world, highlighting women's experiences. The project title makes reference to the female-centeredness of dos Santos' and Rivera's music, and to the ocean that touches all the countries whose musical traditions they draw from, in a innovative collaboration with Brazilian, Portuguese, and African musicians.

The Young Roots Performance Series project grew out of the two rotating biennial festivals produced at Hostos Center: BomPlenazo, which focuses on the bomba and plena traditions of Puerto Rico, and Quijombo, which focuses on the congo, salve and guloya, which continue to be extensively documented by the media center BronxNet. BronxNet produces programs that globally connect one of the most diverse and culturally rich places in the world: the Bronx – and the TV station’s award winning production team will produce a series of Young Roots docu-concerts.
