Hip Hop Hoodíos & Amnesty International Partner For Viva la Guantanamera EP
Published July 26, 2007

Latino-Jewish urban collective Hip Hop Hoodíos is back with a new 5-song digital-only release, the Viva la Guantanamera EP (Nacional Records – Aug. 7). The post-ethnic merrymakers will be 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. The song 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 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.

Also featured on the Viva la Guantanamera EP are remixes of tracks from Hip Hop Hoodíos’ 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 Musiqu’.

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).
