COLECTIVA and Maria Grapsa present: Under The

The debut single from COLECTIVA 'Under The', out now on Movimientos. Tormented melodies, jagged horn hits, and a rhythm section bristling with energy open the song, evoking sounds of struggle. Harmonies stack, as the musicians reach a triumphant yet vulnerable precipice. The arrival of a montuno transports them towards a utopia, and launching into a timba-inflected breakdown, COLECTIVA take us home, above the trees, within the earth, where we are one, the big cats chasing snakes while deer run free. Their first single, Under The came to life when jazz pianist Maria Grapsa brought an early arrangement of the tune to the collective. Working together over a series of collaborative sessions typical of their creative process, they crafted the song you hear today.

WARA - Yo No Me Voy

LISTEN HERE: https://ffm.to/yonomevoy https://santuariocompilation.bandcamp.com/track/yo-no-me-voy www.instagram.com/waramusic Yo No Me Voy is a celebration of Latinx immigrants, our stories, our journey, and a call to empowerment. This is the story of all of us. The musician who decided to stay at the final city of the international tour, and not go back home. The lawyer who sold her snazzy flat in a nice area of the city to get a tiny financial head start in her new life in Switzerland. The Mexican teenager who walked through the border and watched two people die of dehydration along the way. The indigenous activist in Argentina who flees the danger of constant death threats. The student from a well-off family who got accepted to Oxford and is expected to make big bucks and marry a "good white girl". The child who was plucked out of bed one night and plonked onto a makeshift raft along with her father and brother, who set sail into the ocean and were never seen again. Congresswomen. Teachers. Judges. Architects. Strippers. Deliveroo people. Postgrad students. Cleaners. Doctors. Mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters. Bound together by an "aquí" and an "allá". We are many and we are here. And we are not going anywhere because this is our home now too.

The death of George Floyd; an event occurring in the height of a global pandemic that shook the world to its core and the death of Jesus Christ; the reality and re-considering of which I reckoned with and was moved by more than ever going through and coming out of 2020's lockdown. Never in my life had I seen protests take place across the world for such a unified cause. We witnessed a historical moment in last year's global coming together that cannot be forgotten or treated as a passing phase. 'Sacrificial Lamb' is a continuation of the conversations that arose in the wake of Floyd's death on this day last year. Seeing people of different ethnicities become equally outraged by the blatant injustice of one brother at the hands of essentially another, struck a bitter sweet chord within me. It reminded me that the fight against police brutality, racial prejudice but most of all the principalities and powers revelling in the calamities of this broken world is one that we are all needed for no matter what community we represent. As a Christian, this also has meaning for me on a spiritual level. Revelation 7 vs 9 says it best with the picture of heaven being a multi-cultural one. This is strengthened by Jesus bringing this heavenly multi-ethnic unity down to earth by declaring that disciples are to be made of ALL nations. These realisations influenced my selection of the musicians on the track; each person hailing from diverse ethnic backgrounds with an equal representation of genders among the instrumentalists and vocalists. As a black female instrumentalist, it also meant a lot to me that women instrumentalists were equally represented in this bands line-up. It is also such a blessing that this multi-ethnic representation continues down to the high quality audio engineers and filmmakers from 5db studios; without which this project would never have even gotten off the ground! More on 5db The collaboration which has formed between myself, my friends and 5db studios in West London has been an absolutely beautiful answered prayer. It came at a time when the facilitation of a project this size really did look like it was going to be impossible; especially with COVID rendering all of our processes so much more difficult. Never have I ever experienced a group of people who understood the vision that I brought to them in such detail and have shown such commitment to bringing the vision into fruition. 5db truly gave their all to the facilitation of the audio and video content of 'Sacrificial Lamb'. Without the hard work, of the audio engineers who gave their time and high level of skill to the recording and mixing process and the filmmakers who masterfully captured the entire 3-day rehearsal and recording process merging artistic concepts with musical ones; this project WOULD NOT be what it is today! For this I am eternally thankful.
