Angélica María is an internationally touring Chicana poet & musician originally from Los Angeles. Her work focuses on healing integenerational wounds and reclaiming ancestral feminine power. This work has brought her across the country as a Tedx speaker, and as a finalist for both the National Poetry Slam 2018 and The Women of the World Poetry Slam 2019.

In 2019, she signed with Conscious Campus to bring poetry & writing workshops to university campuses across the country. Her work has been featured in the L.A Times, The Breakbeat Poets Anthology: LatiNEXT (2020) on Haymarket Books and Girls Becoming Women (2021) on Workman Publishing. Her work focuses on using storytelling to expand the latina narrative in both poetry & music. She has been invited to present at countless universities across the U.S including Harvard University and Yale University, amongst others.

In 2020, Angelica Maria was contracted by Facebook to write a poem for their National Campaign "My People My Power", and in 2022, she wrote the first Spanglish poem for a national sports campaign in collaboration with Puma for the USL Women's Soccer League. 

 

Her latest endeavor is into music, combining a poetic lyrical style, storytelling and smooth soundscape to create a powerful listening experience.   

This project is supported in part by the Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Community Foundation.
