Anticipated Debut "La Pura Vida"
7/21/06 - LatinRapper.com news
West Coast artist Jehuniko
prepares his debut solo record "La Pura Vida" on Kemo The
Blaxican's Dead Silence Records. Represented as a a unique
mixture of art, music, poetry, and world consciousness. A self
described addict of the painted and spoken word, with a
background in Freelance journalism, Murals, Graphic Design,
fashion design, and Community Volunteer work, Jehuniko is as
diverse as he is ecclectic.
Starting in 1993, he began singing in Punk bands, doing Spoken
Word Events, which led to a love of performing, sharpened
spontaneity, and paid speaking engagements.
In 2001, after a career changing introduction to Latin hip hop
original Kemo of Delinquent Habits, Jehuniko began recording
and performing in Los Angeles, doing dirt whenever possible to
let the world know that he had arrived. 2006 will see the
return of a Costa Rican tour which coincides with the release
of "la pura vida" Jehuniko's debut solo record on Dead Silence
Records with accompanying video for the single, "el animal
humano" which was shot in Costa Rica. The future glimmers with
positive energy, as the Messenger of Sound brings water to the
drought, offering nutrition and a soundtrack for the musical
revolution. In the footsteps of the EZLN, Manu Chao, Jim
Morrison, Pancho Villa, and Tupac, Jehuniko recognizes the
importance of the unification of all people everywhere and
empowering Latinos with the Information Revolution.
Upcoming releases include Jehuniko & Ikuestion are "almas
intocables" full length project record. "King of distraction"
promotional mixtape, serving as a promotional full length CD
for Jehuniko's second release "cold in the hot sun" which is
tentatively due out in late 2006.
