Local Music

On this episode of Audio Revolution! host Gabriel Rima shares a variety of youth-produced local music ranging from hip hop to electronic, intricately composed post-rock to subtle acoustic guitar. Gabe introduces us to the people behind the music in a series of thoughtful interviews with local musicians that give you access to the community of creative young people all over Santa Fe.

Parents and Teens

In this special Audio Revolution! broadcast, Youth Media Project teamed up with the spectacular SWAT Team at ATC. SWAT stands for the Student Wellness Action Team and is a program at Santa Fe Public Schools.  This group from ATC (The Academy of Technology and the Classics) decided they wanted to better the lives of their peers by creating a powerful, moving and honest show about parent teen relationships. The show will share new perspectives and new truths about this important relationship and leave you contemplating your own familial life. Enjoy!

What is American?

In this edition of Audio Revolution! hosts Gabriel Rima and Savannah Chapman-Martinez take you into the depths of identity: What does it mean to be American? Who gets to be American and who doesn’t? What are the freedoms and privileges American’s have? And, do all American’s have those freedoms? And what does it mean to be both American and another ethnicity and/or culture?

Unconventional Art

Explore the underground with Audio Revolution!. This show investigates the world of unconventional, underrepresented, and underground arts.  From Hip Hop to art happenings and video games to spoken word poetry, this Audio Revolution! will get you reconsidering what is art and why it might or might not be important. Let hosts Adrian Andre of Santa Fe Community College and Conor Cole in the Master’s program guide you through the unseen and unappreciated.

Enjoy, Believe, Dream

From The Santa Fe Indian School, Kayleen Duran created this piece about why she thinks it’s important to enjoy, believe and dream.  Her short piece is part poem, part rap, and part manifesto about how she chooses to live her life.  From the hip-hop inspired activities she does to enjoy herself, to the dreams of becoming a rapper/producer,  Kayleen’s audio-manifesto is meant to uplift and inspire her fellow native peoples.
