Play • 1 hr 24 min

Hola, bienvenidos, and welcome to a podcast where we tell stories for us and by us.

With us today are 3 band members from the musical group Quinto Imperio. The band is based in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago. Their music blends Cumbia and alternative beats to create a unique sound. Their activism centers around promoting immigration reform and supporting undocumented students.

Today's episode will focus on the song Nostalgia which chronicles our guests' journey back to Mexico after many years since immigrating to the United States. Watch the music video for this song here:

Our guests are:

  • Adrianna - singer and community organizer
  • Quintiliano (Kin-T) - MC, keyboardist, and non profit professional
  • Edy - singer, songwriter, and the band's cofounder
