DCC Campus Concert and End of Year Celebration: Raro

Date / Time

May 5, 2023

5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join the UIC Disability Cultural Center for an end-of-year celebration on Cinco de Mayo with Spanish rock band Raro! We’ll also hear from the Rios Trio, who will open for Raro.

Lead singer Stephanie Alma incorporates her perspective as a Mexican American disabled woman into her songwriting and performance. Stephanie is a UIC alum and earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and disability and human development in 2018. She was also the very first undergrad worker at the UIC Disability Cultural Center, where she explored disability culture and met with other disabled artists and educators who have influenced her work. In 2022, she was a 3Arts/Bodies of Work Residency Fellow. 

She’s joined by bandmates Tommy Carroll (drums), DC (Bass), and Marcos Rios (guitar)
