In celebration of Hispanic Heritage month, Rhode Island Public Radio’s John Bender profiled Warwick musician Lydia Perez.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Perez has been performing throughout Rhode Island since the mid-nineties.
With her group, Yoruba 2 she has toured throughout the region, teaching and performing the traditional music and dance of Puerto Rico.
“Well my name is Lydia Perez, I’m a traditional artist in the state of Rhode Island.”
“My name is Yidell Rivera. I am Lydia’s oldest daughter, and I’ve worked with her since, well, my childhood.”
