“Amor y Sal” is a song that basically talks about love stories in general, seeing how these are formed and eventually disappear, suddenly they emerge and then they are shipwrecked.  The song talks about the frustration of realizing from the beginning that it wasn’t going to work out and that it always ends up falling apart halfway,” commented Las Villa in reference to the single.

The music video, directed by Diego Ante and shot in the city of Bogota, takes place mostly inside a train, narrating from an imaginary world the different stops which symbolize the stages that life presents us with and the people we meet during those stages.

“The video tells the story of this every day that is happening in parallel and happens to many people where we live in a constant movement and meet many people and learn different from many people, where we fall in love and fall out of love,” said Las Villa about the music video.

Recently, Las Villa were one of the main acts Spotify’s first all-female festival in Colombia, EQUAL Festival. Laura and Lucia’s return to the stage after the pandemic was epic. For their comeback they invited Luis Jimenez from Lagos to sing their smash hit “Cuerno”.

OVI – MUÉVELO LENTO

A few months after dropping a solo trap track, OVI, one of the sought-out artists in the current Latin trap movement, is back to release MUÉVELO LENTO, a new record and music video featuring urban newcomer Luar La L and American producer Ronny J.

Ovi surprised fans by sending them into a frenzy and getting their approval of the single prior to its release by having announced “Muévelo Lento on his social media following with a preview of the audio. His followers instantly connected with the song, reassuring the artist it is a single to be reckoned with. Produced by Ronny J, whose credits include Kanye West, Eladio Carrión, Xxxtentacion, and Wiz Khalifa, the infamous blunt verses stacked over the dark sliding basslines interpreted by two of the most crucial players in the genre make this the hottest trap anthem before the end of summer.

This is not the first time that Ovi and Luar La L collaborate, as they have proven to have a natural creative fluidity when teaming up. Maintaining the classic ominous essence throughout the music video, the artists are living a life of luxury with fancy cars, beautiful women, and Ovi’s crown which couldn’t miss the opportunity to make a feature in this racy music video.

From the very start of his career, Ovi has showcased his talent to the world, and has had no doubts about his intention to dominate the urbano scene with a constant repertoire of hit anthems. From stellar performances to scoring nominations to the latest awards shows, the singer-songwriter is currently working on his fourth studio album and is set to take the stage at this year’s Vibra Urbana Festival in Miami in December where fans can definitely catch him singing Muévelo Lento.

Maniobra: A Cultural Employment Initiative

The Mellon Foundation and the Centro de Economía Creativa (CEC) announced Maniobra – a newly launched $8 million cultural employment initiative created to facilitate stable employment opportunities for artists while strengthening the administrative bandwidth of community-based cultural organizations across Puerto Rico. In its inaugural stage, Maniobra – named in reference to “the work of one’s hands” – is providing support including salary, training, health and other benefits, and more to 37 artists and 25 artist-centric organizations across 12 municipalities.

Puerto Rican artists play critical leadership roles within their communities, yet often live in a state of financial precarity, earning a median annual income of approximately $16,000 for their work, with 46% generating less than $12,000 annually. Through Maniobra, CEC and the Mellon Foundation underscore the labor of artists as valued work, while modeling remuneration that reflects artists’ formal education, experience, and contributions to society.

“This initiative shines an important light on the economic state and personal well-being of the artistic community and centers both as priorities for philanthropy and cultural policy,” said Javier Hernández Acosta, Founder of the Center and Dean of the School of Arts, Design and Creative Industries at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón. “Equity and salary justice within the arts had previously been relegated to a secondary agenda item, but we are now thrilled to work with the Mellon Foundation to advance this important work through real action.”

Maniobra provides participating organizations with the financial support needed to hire at least one full-time artist and $20,000 yearly budget to support the organization’s programming and creative projects over the entirety of the three-year initiative. The funding will not only strengthen organizations’ artistic programming and financial stability, but will also serve as a pilot that could be expanded in the future and has the potential of driving philanthropic support to a more holistic approach.

“Lifting up and celebrating the creativity of Puerto Rican artists, writers, and performers means granting them the resources they need to pursue their callings, supporting the archipelago’s artistic and cultural organizations, and broadly fostering the work and preservation of Puerto Rican culture at a time when stable employment and funding for these efforts has been imperiled,” said Elizabeth Alexander, President of the Mellon Foundation.“We are honored to support Maniobra, and excited to see the work that comes from this remarkable initiative.”

Prior to the launch of Maniobra, CEC and the Mellon Foundation collaborated on artists-centered initiatives including the development of Nido Cultural – a platform created to support management services for artistic and cultural production in Puerto Rico, as well as on an initiative aimed at Mapping of Cultural Work in Puerto Rico. Maniobra was inspired by Creatives Rebuild New York (CRNY) – the $125 million Mellon Foundation-backed initiative created to help reactivate the creative economy of New York State and secure the future of its artists.

The artists selected for Maniobra, which commenced in early April, were selected by an advisory team of key stakeholders from the local artistic community. Considering the diversity of practices and approaches across the islands, collectives and organizations were selected based on their rich experience in artistic and cultural work.

“In addition to supporting these artists, we also expect to strengthen the work of the collectives and organizations by providing technical and managerial support as well as operational budgets for the execution of the initiatives,” said Sonia Méndez, Program Manager of the Centro de Economía Creativa, Inc. “It also represents a unique project that not only offers the artist a salary, but also fringe benefits and health care coverage.”

Kid Flex – Esperando Pa Verte

Following the release of his single “No Soy Perfecto,” Kid Flex releases his latest single Esperando Pa Verte. The song and official music video are available on all digital platforms starting today.

Esperando Pa Verte,” written by Stefano Fernandez and produced by Kid Flex and Were, is a song that, like ‘No Soy Perfecto’ focuses on the reflections of a past love and the consequences of actions previously taken.

Esperando Pa Verte is a song that talks about the desire of a guy who is very anxious to once again see the girl he loves so much, with whom he has had problems and arguments but despite it all, he promises to respect her and be there for her, even when she doesn’t want to hear from him,” commented Kid Flex.

In the music video, directed by Giacomo Cochella, we see Kid Flex deep in thought as he sits in the living room of an almost empty house glued to the phone with the illusion of being able to contact the person he cherishes and continues to love. Kid Flex continues to work on new music expected soon under Warner Music Latina.

ABOUT KID FLEX:

Composer, musician, and producer. KID FLEX, does not show his face, because he wants to be the voice of a community that perhaps is not heard often. Through music, he tells his stories and his feelings, but he wants to transcend. His public image is a television, where his community is projected. He does not reveal his identity because he prefers to be a symbol rather than just being a person.
