Lianna

Lianna is one of the most versatile and fresh voices of Colombia. A singer, songwriter and pioneer of mixing this genres and styles in her country, she’s found her sound in the cadence of R&B, Soul and Hip-Hop beats. Her inspiration is rooted in elements of Jazz, Neo- soul, funk, Latin American and caribbean music blended in soulful melodies which she transforms into a solid expressive energy. Her voice is filled with a character that shines in the independent music scene and should be heard.

Her begginings in the music scene were when she was only seventeen, recording the first of multiple collaborations with many artists of colombian Hip Hop, her signature sound, her lyrics and style have made her one of the most representative voices, participating in the productions of artists like Big Mancilla, Ali a.k.a Mind, Crudo means raw, Alcolirykoz y Tres coronas among others.

In 2008 Lianna released her first EP as a solo artist entitled ‘Lianna’ produced by Benny B, including four songs that will define the Hip Hop Soul sound that will become a trademark of her career, album that will launch her for the first time into the stage of Hip Hop al Parque Festival in 2009, one of the most important festivals in Latin America for this music scene.

“Paciencia”, her second album was released in 2012, produced by David King and Benny B. From Audiolirica Ent. , the album resumed the process of eight years of musical career, exploring and drawing influences from Jazz, Bossa Nova, Soul, Rockabilly, Hip Hop and Tango. From this album the songs “Para adelante” and “Inspiracion”, reached the number 1 position in many local and national radio stations. With this release she had the chance of participating in Rock AL Parque Festival 2013, touring in diverse independent venues in Mexico, and then opening for British singer and songwriter Joss Stone in Bogota, among other important stages.

In her second album titled “Como el agua”, Lianna delivers a sound full of beats, sam- ples, rhymes and melodies with elements linked to her essence and musical beginnings as an artist together with well-known, talented producers and beat makers of the hip-hop scene in Colombia like El Arkeologo, who has produced most of her songs, Crudo Means Raw and Avenrec and a song produced by herself alongside Euri and D.J.H. Other special features that appear on the album are: Gambeta of Alcolirykoz, N. Harden and Anyone Cualkiera, all prominent MC’s of Colombia.

“Como el agua” is a unique album that conveys Lianna’s personal style in her lyrics and music. Defined by the voice of a woman, it clearly narrates what she represents, her influences, her story and the sounds that inspire her. It is an album that challenges the need for music that is honest and genuine.

1280almas

1280 Almas is a rock band from Bogotá, Colombia, formed in 1992 by Fernando del Castillo (vocals), Pablo Kalmanovitz (drums), Juan Carlos Rojas (bass) and Hernando Sierra (guitar). The name (“1280 Souls”) comes from the Spanish translation of the novel Pop. 1280, by U.S. author Jim Thompson. In the group’s early days, the book had been

an artistic reference point for the founding members in their search for a new sound that would be raw, electric, accessible, urban, and would evoke the particular historical moment they came out of. Their first release was Háblame de horror (“Speak to me of Horror”), originally put out as a cassette on the independent label Hormigaloca. It was their first experiment with their particular blend of punk, ska, and Latin rhythms.

The following year, encouraged by the enthusiastic reception Háblame received from the youth of Bogotá, they released Aquí vamos otra vez (“Here We Go Again”), this time on the Mexican “Culebra” imprint of the multinational label BMG. In 1996, under the same label, they released La 22 (“22nd Street”) and then Changomán (“Monkey Man”) in 1998. These two LPs solidified the group’s popularity in Colombia and include many songs that remain fan favorites, but were also their last on a major label. Since 2000, the band has remained independent, starting with the 2003 EP Bombardeando (“Bombing”) and the following year’s album Sangre Rebelde (“Rebel Blood”), on the band’s own La Coneja Ciega label. In early 2011, 1280 Almas released Alegría por encima de la tristeza (“Joy Over Sadness”), a double live album shipping with both a CD and DVD. It was an attempt to capture the experience of their concerts and the visceral connection they have with their audience, as closely as possible. The video was edited and produced by Velouria TV in co-production with La Coneja Ciega. Pueblo Alimaña (roughly, “a people of scoundrels”), released again under their own label, followed in 2012. It is both an intimate and radical work, with several tracks entering heavy rotation on Colombian radio and adored by their fans. The year 2012 was also the band’s 20th anniversary for which they were honored in a moving tribute at one of Latin America’s biggest music festivals: Bogotá’s “Rock al Parque”. In 2014, las Almas began to tour internationally starting in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2016 they toured Europe for the first time, with support from the German-based Dirty Immigrant label. While in Berlin, they released Domestiko an album on vinyl that includes six new songs and a six-song selection of their previous work for new listeners. The tour covered a large swath of the continent, with shows in Berlin, Prague, Vienna,Amstetten, Linz, Brussels, Paris, Berne, San Galo, Zurich, Barcelona and Madrid. The tour opened up new opportunities for the band as well. In early 2018, they traveled to the Basque Country to record Marteko Euriak (“Mars Rains“). The album explores new sounds and techniques that had not been available to the band in other sessions, with 14 new songs available in both Colombia and Europe on CD and vinyl. Some singles has already become a number-one hits on Colombia’s top rock radio stations.
