For Your Consideration

Échale Sal habla de los viajeros, los caminantes, los inmigrantes: de todos aquellos que día a día ponen lo mejor de sí para mejorar sus comunidades. De lo que traemos a cada lugar que nos hace únicos y que se vuelve en el motor de un conglomerado como Nueva York, Medellín o Bogotá. Es la lucha y la esperanza, eso que nos une y nos hace esenciales.

La canción fue co-escrita por Alea y Sinuhé Padilla, quiénes se inspiraron en los viajeros del metro de Nueva York: gente trabajadora, los obreros, los vendedores, las familias de regreso a casa, las abuelas que ya lo han visto todo... Gente en su mayoría afro descendiente, latina e hindú que comparten el viaje.

"En el metro se ve de todo, pero lo que nos llamó la atención esa noche eran sus miradas; el cansancio y el compromiso con la causa, cualquiera que fuera, todos tenían algún motivo por el que luchaban muy duro" Alea.

Échale Sal se grabó y mezcló en Jarana Records en el Bronx, NY, bajo la producción de Sinuhé Padilla.  La masterizacióm fue a cargo del Ganador del GRAMMY Luis F. Herrera, en Masterhead Lab Mastering Studio.

"Es una canción muy especial para mí, tiene mucha alma... Me recuerda a todo lo que hemos hecho para sobrevivir y encontrar dignidad en un lugar donde nos llaman inmigrantes" Alea.

Échale Sal talks about travelers, walkers, immigrants: all those who do their best every day to improve their communities. Of what we bring to each place that makes us unique and that becomes the engine of a conglomerate like New York, Medellín or Bogotá. It is the struggle and the hope, that which unites us and makes us essential.

The song was co-written by Alea and Sinuhé Padilla, who were inspired by the commuters of the New York subway: working people, workers, salespeople, families back home, grandmothers who have already seen it all. Mostly Afro-descendant, Latino and Hindu people who share the journey.

"In the subway you can see everything, but what caught our attention that night were their looks; the fatigue and commitment to the cause, whatever it was, they all had some reason why they fought very hard" Alea.

Échale Sal was recorded and mixed at Jarana Records in the Bronx, NY, produced by Sinuhé Padilla. The mastering was conducted by GRAMMY Winner Luis F. Herrera, at Masterhead Lab Mastering Studio.

"It is a very special song for me, it has a lot of soul ... It reminds me of everything we have done to survive and find dignity in a place where they call us immigrants" Alea.

Alea and the commitment to the music of Colombian roots in "Alborotá".

“Aire guajiro” is the name of the most recent song that Alea has given to the world. A theme that rounds off and illustrates the personality of Alborotá, his next album. With a clear essence of the regional music of his native Colombia, he seeks to make these sounds of the Caribbean and its coasts valid through sounds and lyrics.
