My son's band has a hit record
« on: August 27, 2007, 12:31:59 PM »
This is my son Abe's band. And yah, I'm whooping it up over this!

HIP HOP HOODÍOS “VIVA LA GUANTANAMERA” EP DEBUTS IN TOP 10 OF ITUNES LATINO AND HITS #1 ON EMUSIC;  NEW SINGLE IS SUBJECT OF NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO SEGMENT
 
 
On New Single “Viva la Guantanamera”, the Critically Acclaimed Latino-Jewish Urban Collective Is Joined by Members of
Grammy-Winning Acts Ozomatli & The Klezmatics as Well as
Kemo the Blaxican of Delinquent Habits
 
 
Album Also Features Remixes by The Pinker Tones & Leo Sidran (Jorge Drexler, Ana Laan);  iTunes and eMusic Editions of the
 ‘Viva la Guantanamera EP’ Each Feature Exclusive Bonus Tracks
 
 
Listen to Hip Hop Hoodíos “Viva la Guantanamera” Segment on
Public Radio International/NPR’s “The World” Here: http://www.theworld.org/audio/08132007.mp3
 
 
“The socially conscious anti-corporate playa-hating of Hip Hop Hoodíos is
funnier than any Beastie Boys punchlines recently.”    -VILLAGE VOICE
 
 
“This Latino-Jewish rap duo’s stew of klezmer, pop-hop and rock en español is meatier than its gimmicky aroma would suggest…..Hip Hop Hoodíos combines lithe Latin dance and the sharp hooks of radio rock with elastic Spanish rhymes and
Dr. Dre–baiting jokes. Finally, a rap group whose only beef is with pork.”    -BLENDER
 
 
“Hip Hop Hoodios are the hottest white rappers since the Beastie Boys.”-BUFFALO NEWS
 
 
“The lyrics are provocative, clever and funny.  Musically, Hip Hop Hoodíos are an intriguing mix of modern and classical instruments, cutting-edge sensibility and  ancient echoes.  The Hoodios are indeed onto something funky, fresh and fun.”    -ASSOCIATED PRESS
 
            Latino-Jewish urban collective Hip Hop Hoodíos have seen a surprisingly strong debut for their new digital-only ‘Viva la Guantanamera EP’ (Nacional Records).  In its first week of release, the album debuted in the Top 10 of iTunes Latino’s Top 100 Albums Sales chart (ahead of platinum-selling acts like Shakira and Enrique Iglesias) and also hit #1 on eMusic, the second largest digital service.  Hip Hop Hoodíos were also recently profiled on Public Radio International’s nationally syndicated program The World: http://www.theworld.org/audio/08132007.mp3
 
The post-ethnic merrymakers in Hip Hop Hoodíos are donating 18% of net profits from digital sales of the “Viva la Guantanamera” single to Amnesty International’s efforts to close Guantanamo Bay Prison and encourage the full restoration of due process.
 
"Music has an infectious quality, particularly a song as joyous and entertaining as Viva la Guantanamera,” says Larry Cox, Amnesty International USA’s Executive Director.  “It is our hope that this song will inspire action against the continued human rights abuses carried out at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, where for more than 5 years now, individuals have been held without charge, without trial and without end. "
 
The “Viva la Guantanamera” single was produced by Wildog of Ozomatli, and is a veritable Latino-Jewish “We are the World”; joining Hip Hop Hoodíos as guests on the track are Wildog, Frank London and Lorin Sklamberg of recent Grammy winners The Klezmatics, Kemo the Blaxican of Latin hip hop pioneers Delinquent Habits, and instrumentalists Walter Miranda (Beastie Boys, Plastilina Mosh) and Chris Washburne (The Syotos Band, Tito Puente).
 
Amnesty International has initially committed to inclusion of the new Hip Hop Hoodíos track “Viva La Guantanamera” on multiple Amnesty and Amnesty-related websites including AmnestyUSA.org, MusicForHumanRights.org, and TearItDown.org.  Amnesty International is currently making a free streaming download of “Viva la Guantanamera” available at its Denounce Torture site: http://www.amnestyusa.org/Torture/Get_Involved/page.do?id=1031009&n1=3&n2=38&n3=1053
 
 
Also featured on the ‘Viva la Guantanamera EP’ are remixes of tracks from Hip Hop Hoodios’ previous album ‘Agua pa’ La Gente.’  DJ Niño of Barcelona-based electronic sensations The Pinker Tones puts a dancefloor-friendly spin on the track “Agua pa’ la Gente”, while Hector Coulon a.k.a Leo Sidran (producer of Jorge Drexler’s Oscar-winning “Al Otro Lado del Rio”) recasts “1492” with spacey jazz bass.  Also included on the mini-album is a shiny new mix of fan favorite “Havana Nagila” from the forthcoming V2 France release ‘Nu Jewish Musique’.
 
 
The iTunes edition of the EP includes an exclusive bonus track, a live Hip Hop Hoodíos performance of “Ocho Kandelikas” on LATV.  The eMusic edition also includes an exclusive track, “Tu Margarita,” an anthem that sees Hip Hop Hoodíos write and record the greatest reggaeton song of ALL TIME (and in only one hour).

What great news Andy and congrats to Abe!!!  My dinosaur p.c. at home didn't take the download of Quick player so I will try to listen at work if I get a spare few moments.  My old roommate Les introduced me to Klezmer music and I probably have some old albums and tapes that are collecters items...I will someday have to go thorugh my inventory I still have from Les...Some of it was terrific and the combo of Latin and traditonal Jewish music is a wonderful concept!!!

Keep on truckin'- OY - or is it OYA !!!

And so you should, Andy! I am an OZO fan (and also did some political business with them), by the way. Maybe the State Dept will send your Son, et al to Cairo just like Ozomotli?! Sharing genuine music is such a gift.
