A.CHAL to perform at LAMC

A.CHAL to perform at LAMC

 

Away From His Hands is Gorhams rendition of the current youth culture found in rodeo and ranch life throughout the Americas. The idea of nature and isolation on a ranch have been a personal preoccupation for Gorham and his research led him from haunting imagery of bullriders and cowboys to uncovering artwork inspired by cattle branding symbols, which are rich in their own distinct meanings.


 
This evolution of western style incorporates sportswear references, patchwork denim, paisley print scarf linings, worn-in leather vests and a collection of vintage inspired tees. Mr. Gorham has created a cult following through his fitted leather goods and beauty brand Byredo. The collaboration with FRAME is the first-time Gorham has turned his hand to ready-to-wear, with typically compelling insouciance.


 
The accompanying campaign was cast by Gorham personally and features critically acclaimed Peruvian born but New York/ Los Angeles bred artist and producer A.CHALGorham was first introduced to A.CHALs work by a friend, but it was the young artists personal style that the designer felt really captured the spirit of the capsule for FRAME. The mostly monochromatic images, shot by Torstensson in Los Angeles, mark an aesthetic departure for the brand; further illustrating Gorhams visual narrative of subculture and effortless attitude. A.CHAL follows in the footsteps of the cinematic iconoclasts of former FRAME mens campaigns; Matt Dillon and Willem Dafoe.

Los Drugos lanzan tributo al SGT. PEPPER S de Beatles

Los Drugos lanzan tributo al SGT. PEPPER S de Beatles

Luego de tres años de ausencia en la escena local en los que pese a ello su música e imagen se mantuvo vigente a través de las redes sociales y plataformas de difusión digital, LOS DRUGOS, la banda de enmascarados del rock peruano reaparece con un insospechado producto que desde su anuncio de lanzamiento ha sorprendido y generado polémica, como ya es costumbre, pues se trata de un álbum en el que, a su estilo, rinden tributo a los máximos héroes del rock and roll mundial THE BEATLES.


Bajo el sugerente titulo de “SGT. DRUGOS LONELY MASK CLUB BAND", el álbum de retorno de los atrevidos e irreverentes  rockeros peruanos  reversiona íntegramente, en su particular estilo y cantando por primera vez en ingles, al mítico álbum de los Fab Four "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band"  que en pocas semanas conmemora sus Bodas de Oro al cumplirse 50 Años  de su lanzamiento oficial.


Según han dejado saber LOS DRUGOS a través de su pagina oficial de facebook (www.facebook.com/losdrugos), algunas versiones de este álbum, cuya producción se inicio el 24 de Noviembre del año pasado tal cual lo hicieron The Beatles en 1966, son alegres y vibrantes, otras tristes y melancólicas, pero finalmente todas reflejan la propia percepción que tiene la banda respecto a la música de THE BEATLES medio siglo después de haberse editado la histórica y venerada placa discográfica que es considerada como "El Mejor Disco de Rock del Siglo 20" por la gran influencia que genero en este genero y en la sociedad misma a partir de su publicación en 1967.


"...Hemos respetado los patrones fundamentales de cada canción, sobre todo de aquellas que son consideradas himnos clásicos del rock, pero a esto le hemos añadido sonidos y estructuras sonoras modernas buscando sugerir como se habría construido y escuchado este disco si perteneciera a este tiempo..."  Han señalado LOS DRUGOS al referirse al contenido de su álbum de retorno que al parecer podría convertirse en el único disco tributo al Sgt. Peppers que se editaría este 2017 en todo el mundo.


El lanzamiento de “SGT. DRUGOS LONELY MASK CLUB BAND" se efectuara a través de PLATAFORMAS DIGITALES (Spotify, Itunes, Apple Music, Google Play entre otras) el 01 DE JUNIO ,la misma fecha en la que hace 50 años los "Cuatro Grandes de Liverpool" dieron a luz su histórico Sgt. Peppers, álbum que este año es motivo de conmermoracion a nivel mundial y de la que LOS DRUGOS quieren ser parte de esta interpretando, a su estilo, la música de los incomparables Beatles.

Mon Laferte / ÌFÉ / Princess Nokia

Monserrat Bustamante Lafertes, better known as Mon Laferte, love of music began at a very young age. She studied music at the Viña Del Mar conservatory in Chile and reached recognition in her native country thanks to her voice and participation as a judge on a popular talent competition TV show. She later moved to Mexico, where she has quickly reached icon status. Her album Mon Laferte. Vol. 2 garnered two Latin GRAMMY nominations.

ÌFÉ is a bold new musical undertaking from Puerto Rico-based drummer/producer/singer Otura Mun. Mun, an Ifá priest or "Babalawo" in the Yoruba religion, has been at the vanguard of the Puerto Rican music scene since arriving from Indiana in the late 1990s, producing critically-acclaimed albums and songs for many of the islands most important musical voices, including Mima, Cultura Profetica, and Calma Carmona. ÌFÉs latest single "Umbo (Come Down)" is a musical invitation to the benevolent forces that be and draws from rhythms and incantations of sacred Yoruba praise songs. ÌFÉs bold debut album IIII+IIII is out now.

 

Princess Nokia aka 24-year-old Destiny Nicole Ortiz is a multifaceted, DIY artist from the NYC underground. Her unique musical style blends tribal beats with trip hop and R&B - creating an exciting crossover of sounds. Her album, 1992, was called a "hip hop storytelling album" by Remezcla and "an ode to Brown Girl Nation" by Vibe. Rolling Stone listed 1992 as one of its "15 Greatest Albums You Didnt Hear" in 2016. She had breakout hits like "Tomboy" and "Brujas."

 

Saturday, July 15, 2016 - Central Park SummerStage

Los Pericos / La Vida Bohème / Chicano Batman

 

Argentina-based Los Pericos is a reggae band formed in 1987. They are currently on tour celebrating their 30th anniversary. They have enjoyed much success, especially throughout Latin America. Known for their reggae and ska sounds, they have a large catalog of hits. They have performed around the world, and this will be their Central Park debut. In 2016, they released their latest album Soundamerica, which has been hailed for its "reinvention and perseverance" by Rolling Stone.

Two-time Latin GRAMMY winners La Vida Bohème exploded onto the US scene with their debut album Nuestra. Lauded by press after showcases at SXSW and LAMC, the band released Será, which earned them their first Latin GRAMMY win for "Best Short Form Music Video." It was around the same time that the band left their native Venezuela and found artistic refuge in Mexico City, where they finished their recently-released third album, La Lucha. The album was co-produced by Eduardo Cabra (Visitante from Calle 13), debuted at #1 on iTunes, and was their first album to appear on the Billboard Latin Sales charts. Upon the release of their new record, which completes an aptly titled trilogy called "Nuestra Será la Lucha," La Vida Bohème plans to tour in Europe, North America, and South America.

Chicano Batman came out of LA, four young men in vintage formalwear, playing songs that blended Brazilian Tropicalia with early 70s psychedelic soul and the romantic pop of bands like Los Angeles Negros. Since forming in 2008, Chicano Batman have released three full-length albums - a self-titled 2009 debut, 2014s Cycles of Existential Rhyme, and the recently-released Freedom is Free. The band has played Coachella and toured with Alabama Shakes and Jack White. In 2017, they will embark on their own national headline tour.

Debi Nova returns with her most ambitious project of her career: Gran Ciudad

Debi Nova returns with her most ambitious project of her career:  Gran Ciudad

 

Debi Nova, the Costa Rican singer-songwriter nominated for the Latin Grammy presents today Gran Ciudad, her most honest autobiographical work to date.


Gran Ciudad fulfills the singers desire to record an album completely live and allows us to have an intimate look at the personal experiences that in one way or another became ideal stories that were captured in her song lyrics.
Under the production of Mario Caldato Jr, the producer of the Beastie Boys and Jack Johnson, among others, Debi gives life to eleven songs that were completely written by herself. The songs are characterized by a sound evolution that was born without the need to fit in a specific genre compared to her previous work, respectively.


"When I had 11 songs chosen, I realized that they effectively told a story: the story of knowing the unknown; what happens when you dare to try new experiences knowing that you can fall and feel alone", the singer confides. Coincidentally, one of those experiences is what gave the album its name. 


Debi Nova grew up in Costa Rica and when she was 17 traveled to Los Angeles to fulfill her dreams. There, in the Gran Ciudad [Great City], she approached for the first time music she didnt much know of and managed to close a tour with Sergio Méndes. This was the first milestone in her career followed by many accomplishments that built her essence. It was in Los Angeles where the songs that are in this album were born, and it was in Brazil - another gran ciudad - where they were recorded. "Its important to celebrate what makes us unique, thats why I decided to title the album Gran Ciudad."
The album includes two important collaborations: with the renowned percussionist Sheila E. in the song "Dale Play" and with the rapper Illa J on bluesy "Este Amores".


"Illa J and I met many years ago and I decided to invite him to a collaboration with me because he called me various times while I was recording Este Amores -  I felt it was a sign. I met Sheila E. in 2015 and was a fan of hers since I discovered her when I was 19. Its an honor for me to have her play the timbales on Dale Play and for her to be in the songs video that was recorded in Bogota, (Colombia) which will be out in April."

Latin Grammy nominated singer and songwriter Debi Nova debuts "Dale Play" featuring Sheila E, the first official single from her long-awaited album "Gran Ciudad". "Dale Play" featuring Sheila E is a catchy song written by Debi Nova with special participation in the chorus and timbales by renowned percussionist and singer Sheila E.

 

The music video was recorded in Bogota, Colombia and will be available in April. "Dale Play was born with a chorus that I composed several years ago. After the shooting in Orlando, FL, I felt angry and with the need to channel what I felt by writing something about it. It was then when I wrote the verses. Its a song to raise our voices to, for us to be heard and get carried away with the music.


Im blessed to have one of my idols, Sheila E, accompany me on the timbales and vocals," Debi Nova comments. The single is one of the 11 songs included in "Gran Ciudad". The album was recorded in Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles under the production of Mario Caldato Jr (producer of the Beastie Boys and Jack Johnson).

 

The lyric video of "Gran Ciudad" and the video clip for "Hábito" were recorded in the Californian desert and are available now, as part of the new musical project. The album "Gran Ciudad" will be available on March 31st and is now available for pre-order.

 

Grammy® Winning Chican@ Rock Band QUETZAL announces album release concert for The Eternal Getdown on march 25th at Aratani Theater in Los Angeles

Grammy® Winning Chican@ Rock Band QUETZAL announces album release concert for The Eternal Getdown on march 25th at Aratani Theater in Los Angeles

 

GRAMMY Award® winning band Quetzal celebrates the release of its seventh studio album The Eternal Getdown at the Aratani Theatre in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Special guest performers include Aloe Blacc, Ramón Gutiérrez, Rocío Marrón, César Castro, and Joey De Léon, among other.

 

For more than 20 years, the East L.A. Chican@ rock group has been fighting oppression with their unique, culturally diverse soundscapes. The Eternal Getdown (available now) is Quetzals second Tradiciones/Traditions series release under Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. Based in artivism (art + activism), feminist ideals, and the relentless belief that making music together has the profound potential for positive social change, The Eternal Getdown is hailing us to make some noise, to speak up, and to stomp forward in a time that is all too critical. Quetzals previous Folkways Recordings album titled Imaginaries, was recognized by The Recording Academy® with a GRAMMY Award® for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album in 2012.

 

 Founding band member Quetzal Flores and partner Martha González have been creating music that speaks to the responsibility of bearing witness to ones community and acting as agents of transformation. Having grown up in East L.A., they internalized the unique overlap of diverse cultures, sounds, and struggles, and The Eternal Getdown is a continuation of their artivist efforts. Quetzals music incorporates traditional son jarocho, Cuban batá, funk, Chicano rock, soul, and rhythm and blues, which encourages listeners to recognize the fluidity of the varying sounds, and the historical and ancestral relationship between them.

 

"Quetzal has long served as a mirror that reflects back affirmations of belonging and thriving in the face of brutality. This album and concert is a call to humanity to re-member the fabric that binds us and nurtures us, community," said Martha.

 

"JACCC is so excited to present the album release concert for Quetzals The Eternal Getdown," said Alison De La Cruz, Director of Performing Arts & Community Engagement. "This album is musical medicine and fortifies our communities for the current struggles to create meaningful human connections and change in a time of growing fear and isolation. We are excited to welcome not only the 9 members of Quetzal to our stage, but the over 16 guest artists who will truly make this show a night that will be talked about for years to come."
