Cuida tus Espaldas (Single)

December 4, 2019
Producer: Kilko Paz Rivera

Baracutanga’s new single, “Cuida Tus Espalda” (“Watch Your Back”) was written in  response to the inhumane treatment and cowardly raids performed by ICE on immigrants. For this special project they turned right to their folkloric roots, exploring Afro-Andean caporal rhythm and western elements to create a danceable anthem to denounce social injustice.  The lyrics send a message of hope, to all those immigrants who feel they have been unjustly targeted by ICE,  reminding them that they must stay alert, look over the shoulders and watch their backs.  And, no matter what, if they’re physically removed, it’s only their bodies they take, but never their soul.
