Soulophonic was an open mic that was started in 2001. It was intended to describe each and everyone of us through self expression. Hosted by Emilio Hernan'Dez and Dj Slo-Poke at a cafe called Luna Tierra Sol. Soulophonic followed the Monday tradition that Luna Sol began back in 1996. In 99' a poet by the name of Jerry Quickly hosted the night with another companion, Mike Sosa along with Dj Al Jackson and called it "33 & 1/3". It went on to become pretty successful and became well known for hosting great poets and for connecting Spoken Word with Hip Hop. Soulophonic managed to record and release a live Cd which featured many local artists, poets and musicians. Soulophonic was interrupted by a chain of bad incidents (including 9/11). Now reborn and getting ready to reinvent itself in 2011.
