Un Animal (Divina Existencia)
by Ambar Lucid
(15 plays) | (0 fans)

New music from Mexican-Dominican Latin soul songstress Ambar Lucid! The already entrancing track takes viewers on a journey to a mystic forest where magic and music intertwine. The video highlights the constraints of one's mind and the act of both thinking and getting out of the 'box' society and ourselves, individually, often are placed. Drawing inspiration from Ambar's own passion for astrology and tarot card reading, the EP is riddled with Hispanic staples and effortlessly slips between Spanish and English when it suits her mood or composition, effectively drawing an image of her culture and upbringing. https://bit.ly/3AAoJRe https://youtu.be/N96IJWPRUm0

Combo Chimbita's album, IRÉ, channeling the fear, rage and empathy of a world in flames into an urgent spirit of musical dissidence. The album's evocative title is forged upon double-edged meaning: on one hand embracing the divinely inspired blessings and prosperity foretold by our spiritual elders, and on the other a brazen, propulsive affirmation of revolutionary futures in the making.

Canto de Amanecida, Cuculi
by Gepe
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Palacios is one of Chile’s most important and beloved folk music figures, and the album celebrates her life as the centenary anniversary of her birth on September 15. Gepe met Margot Loyola in 2013, in one of the singer's performances at the Olmué Festival. He says that on that day Osvaldo Cádiz, Margot's husband, invited him to their house. That is where he shared with the folklorist, the bond that served as inspiration for this work. Released his new album Folclor Imaginary early Friday, honoring the late Chilean singer-songwriter Margot Loyola Palacios on the eve of what would have been her 100th birthday. For the album, Gepe recruited his fellow countrymen - Miguel Molina, Claudio Constanzo and Claudia Mena - to cook up a genre-spanning compilation of original songs and covers sourced from Palacios' vibrant catalog.

"In Latin America, in Spanish-speaking communities in the U.S., and especially in Mexico, no ghost story is told as often, discussed as enthusiastically, or interpreted as widely, as the legend of La Llorona. “La Llorona” literally means “the weeping woman,” - https://blogs.loc.gov/folklife/2021/10/la-llorona-an-introduction-to-the-weeping-woman/

by Branko
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

New music from Lisbon Portugal! You may have encountered Branko before without knowing it - either through the music he made with the widely adored collective Buraka Som Sistema, through his label Enchufada, or through his work creating, producing and presenting the travel show "Club Atlas" for Portuguese national television, his production work for MIA, or from hearing the monthly NTS radio show "Enchufada Na Zona". The album's title "OBG" comes from Portuguese SMS language, and means "Obrigado" (thank you).
