Helping community artists overcome their fears, The Eskwilax Hour provides a platform that empowers and embraces all walks of life. I recently sat down with the show’s producers Efrain Martinez and Marco Ramos to discuss the origins and future of their Facebook Live show. Having been interviewed on Episode 149, I was immediately fascinated by what The Eskwilax Hour does to help local artists gain exposure and discuss their art. First airing in 2015, The Eskwilax Hour is now well-known name on the streets of Boyle Heights.
