“Upon watching ‘Paris is Burning’ last summer, I couldn’t help but relate to the feeling of being an outsider and having to find my chosen family,” said BOSSA. “My mom being the only child of 11 to leave Venezuela to seek a better, more opportune life, provided my sister and I a good life. However, with apparent class differences within the community we were raised, we coped with the shame of being poor and feeling less than by being quieter, more reserved and docile.”
Expressing wants and desires of a past and undulating glimpses in frustrations and regrets, BOSSA’s deeply effacing gamut of unresolved expectations, rouse into calming pastures of meridian musical charms and floral restitution.
She added: “Once I discovered my art (being music) in my early 20’s, I discovered my voice. Which comically took my mom by surprise largely because I never studied or practiced music in any technical form… When I watched the queens vogue, compete in their beautiful balls, and own their space they curated I felt validated. Moving to New York, living with burlesque performers, wandering the night life and meeting like minded artists to encourage my artistic instincts had become my holy house.”
We all have those times of struggle – in hindsight and in real-time.
What can anyone do about it? BOSSA thinks it’s always a work in progress – helping in the person you’re about to become.
