Alynda Segarra/Hurray for the Riff Raff: The Navigator
The Navigator is a concept album about gentrification and diasporic identity by Alynda Segarra (Hurray for the Riff Raff) originally released in 2017. Teaming up with playwright C. Julian Jiménez (Oso Fabuloso & The Bear Backs), they have brought the story of the Navigator to life. Following the journey of the 17 year old street punk Navita Milagros Negron, Navita faces a choice to leave behind everything she has known of her familial history in the city to wake up and recognize no one and nothing around her. Will she leave it all behind? And what will this clean slate new world look like?
