Che Apalache invited friend Moises Serrano to introduce the band. Their song “The Dreamer” was inspired by the stories of undocumented immigrants living in North Carolina and by Serrano’s life. He is an openly undocumented and queer DACA recipient and community leader who relentlessly pursues equality for his community through the sharing of his story and activism.
Part of our core mission at Myriad and Window Music is to showcase social impact organizations making a difference in their community. Music and social impact go together like peanut butter and jelly, delicious and a life necessity. Serrano serves as the Political Director for El Pueblo, a Raleigh-based nonprofit organization, specializing in leadership development for both youth and adults among Wake County’s growing Latinx community.
Before Che’s set, Serrano spoke to the audience, spreading El Pueblo’s message and inviting their crowd to participate in their cause. It was a perfect fit with the messages of immigration, acceptance, and community in Che’s music.
