The singer Ojos de Brujo presents her second solo album after her collaborative work with flamenco guitarist, Chicuelo.
"Afrolailo" (Kasba Music, 2017) is an album whose performance has allowed the artist not to lose hope and reconnect with her essence, because, as she herself explains, "I write and I sing not to forget but to make it better." Therefore, "Afrolailo" is full of joyful songs that play comfortably between rumba, reggae and flamenco, between Afro styles and Latin music, between Cuba and hip-hop.
In this adventure Marinah has been accompanied by a lot of colleagues and great musicians who already accompanied her in Ojos de Brujo, so we find Maxwell (beatbox), Javi Martín (bass) and Susana Medina (choirs and flamenco dance), as well as Carlos Sarduy (who besides playing the trumpet and the piano, has produced the album with Marinah) along with other collaborations such as Chicuelo (flamenco guitar), Muchacho Serviole (rumba guitar), David Dominguez (flamenco percussion), Frank Durán (drums), Dany Noel (Cuban “tres”), Pedro Medina (flamenco guitar), Julio Nahinim Carbonell (saxo).
Among the vocal collaborations, we also find different artistic aspects, among which are Lamari of Chambao, the young MC’s Lágrimas de Sangre and Arianna Puello.
The record has been recorded in Barcelona, ??between the recording studios La Panchita, with Gerard "Chalart58" Casajus, L'Atlántida with Mario Patiño and Feedback Studio with Cesar J. de Cisneros, and has been mixed in the Basque Country in Garate Studios, with Kaki Arkarazo. Graphic design has again fallen into the hands of Erika Zwiener, a friend Marinah has been working with and responsible for the graphic wonders made by Ojos de Brujo.
