CSCW: Bonus Episode: Normando Performs

CACHIRU & Magdelina and Jose

Since we published Episode 28 featuring Normando Ismay, the loving trickster we have had requests for some of Normando's performances. He has been kind enough to share two pieces that we are presenting here. The first is Normando's telling of a traditional South American Story called Cachiru adapted by Normando with his own accompaniment on quena and bombo.

The second, called Magdelina and Jose,, is a love story set in Argentina during the period of state terrorism from 1976 to 1983, called the Dirty War. This was a time when 10's of thousands of political dissidents and their family members were hunted down and disappeared. This piece was written and performed by Normando Ismay along with Mike O'Dowd.

About the Podcast

Change the Story / Change the World
A Chronicle of Art & Transformation
Poets, dancers, and painters at war with white supremacy, COVID, criminal militias, and Milosevic? Muralists, musicians, and actors, making a difference in homeless shelters, planning departments, emergency rooms, and death row? Sound delusional? Yea, sure, but also true! And when creativity confronts destruction, and imagination faces fear, in places like Ferguson, Johannesburg, Belfast and San Quentin surprising things happen.

Our stories help shape and sustain our beliefs and actions. Bill Cleveland believes that meeting the challenges of the 21st century will require a revolution of thought and deed— in essence, a new set of stories powerful enough to change beliefs and behaviors.

Change the Story/ Change the World is a chronicle of art and community transformation across the globe. In each episode, Bill will introduce listeners to creative change agents working to re-imagine and recreate the social, political, and cultural narratives that define their communities. Join us
