El Sol Habla | Raleigh Burleigh in South America

Raleigh Burleigh comparte audios colectados durante un viaje a Sudamérica. Para esta primera parte, escuchamos a voces de un taller de arpillera en La Ligua, rescatando la memoria de un río que ya se ha secado. 

On this week's episode of El Sol Habla, Raleigh Burleigh shares audio collected from a recent trip to South America. This first part features voices from an embroidery workshop in La Ligua, remembering a river that has gone dry.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
