Miami’s hottest new export ‘Afrobeta’ deliver a flip flop smack ? with their infectious Spanish Cuban Synth vibe on ’‘Chancletazo’

Miami-based electro-funk duo Afrobeta will debut the music video for their new song, “Chancletazo,” a Spanish-language track, and lead single off their upcoming album, Illusion Motel. Directed by Miami native Biagio Musacchia, the video plays out like a quirky short film. In it, a young teenage boy is plagued by the chancletazo, which for the uninitiated–is a verb meaning “to smack with a chancleta, i.e., a flip flop sandal”.

Despite not speaking Spanish, director Biagio says of the song, “It lends itself to the magic of the chancleta I always heard about growing up. Stories of chancletas swerving around corners and navigating hallways to precision strikes.” Magical realism weaves itself throughout the video as the boy is visited at nightfall by the Rat King, who promises to lead him to a curandera, or witch, who can put a spell on his mother’s chancletas, rendering their striking force useless. Along the way, he meets a synth wizard who provides a map to the witch’s lair. The boy follows the map tracing his way through local Miami haunts until he finally reaches a tent in the woods for a fateful meeting with the witch.

Afrobeta has been tearing up dance floors in their hometown since 2006. Formed by lyricist/vocalist Cuci Amador and synth-centric producer/arranger Smurphio, their mutual love of catchy songwriting, Cuban pastries, and dancing til’ 5 AM, is what initially inspired them to make music together.

They’ve toured internationally, performing at some of the largest music festivals and venues in the world including Glastonbury, Space Ibiza, Burning Man, Ultra Music Festival editions in Miami, South Korea and Brazil, Camp Bisco, and Identity Festival.

Their fourth full-length album, the self-produced Illusion Motel, is set to be released in November on their imprint, Pubic Zirconia.

Like Tears for Fears said “You Can Change”, Embrace the Change in the new world with the beautiful melodic voice of ‘Caroline Grace’ as you ‘Open Your Mind’

14-year-old Caroline Grace is reminding the world, and other kids her age, that we have to come together to make the change we want to see in the world with her debut release, Open Your Mind. The 8th grader from Cincinnati, Ohio is sharing her first original song along with a powerful music video that advocates for equality and urges listeners to do what is right during these divisive times.

Produced and co-written by recording artist Alex Angelo, Open Your Mind is a sweet melodic ballad that is meant to inspire and spread positivity. Caroline shares, “I was inspired to write this song when COVID-19 hit the US and I started seeing it diving groups of people. Instead of trying to come together to work on this problem that affected all of us, there was a lot of blame and judgment. Then, when the attention shifted to racism in this country, I saw even more divide. This continued with PRIDE month in June.

The idea behind this single was to accept other people for who they are, come together and make a change. Instead of bringing others down, we need to raise each other up and come together.” As the song concludes, Caroline sings, “I know I’m young but life is not that long, and I’m old enough to know when something’s wrong.”

Caroline Grace is a stellar example of the youth using their voices for change, and she hopes this song will encourage other kids to do the same. Caroline’s passion for music, and her innocent desire for a better world, has caught the attention of people across the country. Her sweet voice, insightful lyrics and catchy tunes belie her commitment to social justice. She’s part of a new generation of musicians who want to use their voices to spread messages of hope and possibility.

DISCOVER WORLD MUSIC: The extraordinary talents of ‘Dan Blanchard’ and friends shine bright on the relaxing gem and oasis of calm ‘Afternoon Ambience’

“Afternoon Ambience” is an album combining Indian Classical Music and Ambient music, in the World Music genre. It is a lush soundscape for relaxation and rejuvenation.

It is based on Rāga Bhimpalasi, an afternoon rāga. Rāga is the main component of Indian Classical Music.  Rāga, a Sanskrit word, means “that which colours or leaves an impression”.   A mood is created by its notes and phrases, and a full recital of a raga consists of several movements, and is very similar to a western classical symphony.

The listener is brought of a journey through melodic and rhythmic structure and improvisations.

Dan Blanchard blends ancient Indian classical music with world and electronic music to transport you to blissful states of mind during yoga and meditation practice or to uplift you during your daily life.

Classically trained on the santoor by Indian master Pandit Satish Vyas and joined by other talented musicians from the world and sound healing scene, Dan explores the therapeutic power of music and adapts it for modern world needs, providing a powerful and engaging experience for overall well-being and inner peace.

What’s the Unique Thing About This Album ?

Indian Classical music is improvisation in nature.

There are rules (certain notes and phrases) to each raga, and there is a typical progression (discussed below with the details of each track).
The album is one raga – it has the same mood throughout, through movements of freeform melody as well as rhythmic exploration.

Cello and Ambient Guitar are not typical Indian Classical Instruments.  Having these instruments provides another dimension to the album.

Dan-Ganges-flipped-cropped

The first song particularly has been described as cinematic. Indian Classical music is a tonal music style, all notes are in relationship to the drone.  As opposed to equal tempered tuning required for western music with chords and different keys which slices the octave into equal steps, the Indian notes (Swaras) are based on simple ratios (3/2, 4/3, 5/4, 7/5, etc.) and mimic the relationships with nature.  This adds to the relaxing quality of the music.

aa front cover 02 2976x2976

1. Unwind (Alaap) [17:29] – Alaap is the beginning of the rāga where the melodic structure is slowly improvised and unveiled in a freeform style without rhythm.  This is performed on the santoor, a 100-stringed Indian instrument, with accompaniment by Bansuri Flute, Cello, Ambient Guitar, Harmonium, and Tanpura (drone instrument).

2. Deeper (Jod) [12:41] – Jod adds a rhythm to the melodic introduction in Alaap.

3. Swirling (Vilambit Gat in Jhaptaal) [14:30] – This is a slow (“Vilambit”) tempo composition (“Gat”) set to a 10 beat (“Jhaptaal”) rhythmic cycle, accompanied by the tabla (Indian hand drums).

4. Building (Madhya Gat in Teentaal) [8:22] – This is a medium (“Madhya”) tempo composition (“Gat”) set to a 16 beat (“Teentaal”) rhythmic cycle, accompanied by the tabla.

5. Ascent (Drut Gat in Teentaal) [6:34] – This is a fast (“Drut”) tempo composition (“Gat”) set to a 16 beat (“Teentaal”) rhythmic cycle, accompanied by the tabla, ending with a very fast climax called Jhala.  In a typical performance this would be the end of the rāga.

6. Let Go [10:27] – A final relaxation with vocal and flute, to integrate the musical journey.

‘SoulSonic’ and ‘JordanL’ drop a thumping cinematic funky sound of Conscious Hip-Hop world change with their powerful ‘Rise’

SoulSonic, originally from Chicago, is a Producer and Composer of Conscious Hip-Hop and Hip-Hop Soul on the Alchemyst Audio music label out of Vegas.

Currently collaborating with lyricist and artist JordanL to create the soul soothing, energy releasing, rallying cry Hip-Hop Anthem RISE. JordanL is an established HipHop artist from Detroit, he brings ridiculous heat and thought inspiring lyrics in his music and delivery.

RISE is a Hip-Hop Anthem speaking on police brutality and world events in the Black community in a voice to mark and embrace the moment and our people. A righteous voice from the experience that the streets in all these cities has taught us, that we have been profiled, treated as less, abused by the power of morally bankrupt officers, and systemically discriminated against.

As a people, the majority in power has put that knee on our neck, from locking car doors when we pass, to crossing the street when we walk, to denying access to opportunity, to hunting us. We as a people have taken a knee, but we as a people also RISE.

SoulSonic to creatively addresses inequities I have seen, personally experienced, or was made aware of as I grew up. RISE is written in 2020, but could have easily been among the songs played at any operation P.U.S.H rally (People United to Serve Humanity) occurring in Chicago in the 70s as well. Its the spirit, and the intention of the spirit that shapes the music. Chicago will always be part of my creative process.

I am drawn to the cinema of music. Music that makes your spirit rise, soar, reflect, or allows you space to contemplate quiet thoughts or the people and environment around you. This can be achieved boldly or subtly, the thoughts can be in the silences in-between the notes, as long as the music is intentional and present.

My inspiration comes from the Women who raised me, my mother Elizabeth, who’s passed, and the Woman I Love, my wife Jennifer. They are both remarkable women, souls and people. They are and were generous, caring, loving and optimistic beings in a world where it seems there is a little less light everyday.
