Some of us are lucky to be professionally talented at one thing, whether it’s a sport or dance or photography, but few of us are lucky enough to be that talented at multiple things.

Raquel Denis is a practicing poet, writing about her life as an Afrolatina in Arizona and the experiences her community faces, and she is now about to put out her first EP as a musician.

The Show had the chance to speak with Raquel in a green room at the Van Buren in downtown Phoenix for a Tiny Desert Concert.
