Our 1st guest is Edwin “El Miedo” Pagán is the Founder-In-Chief of LATIN HORROR. Pagán is a writer, filmmaker (with over 20 years production experience in the narrative and documentary film sectors), photographer/cinemotographer, curator, cultural activist, and life-long horror fan.

Pagán has curated the New Latino Filmmakers screening series at Anthology Film Archives for the past 10 years, where he also now hosts LATIN HORROR’s ‘The HORRORphiles’ fear series several times during the year, including its annual MIEDO MASHUP that celebrates the website’s anniversary.

In 2008 he founded LATIN HORROR, an online niche market website specializing in Latin-influenced horror, its documentation, and promotion as a distinct genre. Pagán is at the forefront of the Latin “Dark Creative Expressionist” movement, a term he coined as a means of identifying the millions of lost souls who live outside the rim of mainstream society and whose lifestyle and work is grounded in horror, the macabre, and gothic arts.

Currently, he is penning a book entitled ‘MIEDO – The History of Latin Horror.’

Our 2nd guest comes from an interview we had with Chicano musician, Victor DeLeon, who is part of the Legacy DeLeon Brothers Band from the State of Colorado (also known as Corky Gonzales country). At the end of our show, I play a song from their Chicano music CD titled “You Are My Sunshine”, and it was my favorite song because of the ‪#‎BLUES‬ -like guitar introduction of the song … that went into an OG type of Chicano music vibe.

A bit about the DeLeon Brothers Band — In the late 40’s going forward to the mid 80’s there lived a musician named Esequiel DeLeon, Sr. This was an unassuming – nondescript trumpet player that would become the Patriarch to a clan and live to share and instill his passion for music and his value for familia with many. Over time, these two elements would be fused, shared, and nurtured to eventually produce a seven decade long legacy with the Patriarch being blessed to see much of it unfold before being called home and leaving the vision in the care of his sons and descendants.

The DeLeon Brothers are blessed to have access to some of Denver’s best veteran musicians who in their own right share a community music legacy and history. They have expanded the DeLeon Brothers Band to also include the larger DeLeon Brothers Legacy Band which includes seasoned veterans as well as some old and new friends. We acknowledge and thank their members Bobby DeLeon (Vocals), Phil DeLeon (Vocals), Vic DeLeon (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Mr. Mark Gonzales (Bass/Vocals), Mr. Nick Carranco (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Mr. Toby Rivera (Drums/Percussion), Mr. Ramon Gordon (Lead Sax/Vocals), Mr. Joey Mora (Sax/Vocals), and Mr. Brandon Barnes (Trumpet.)

A message from the Brothers to our familia. The DeLeon tradition and legacy belongs to you. It is your heritage as well as a responsibility. For the generation already coming up and pursuing accomplishments in music or reaching for your dreams, we are proud of you. Know that life will continue to bring both challenge and opportunity as you stay on this journey. Know that we will always be here for you, but also remember that the standard of integrity and character that our family legacy and tradition embraces will need your thoughtfullness, patience, and the willingness to go that extra mile to embrace humility … never giving up.
