Kinto Sol Celebrates Family Pride in the Midwest
4/1/05 - LatinRapper.com news / Vesper press release

 

 

Kino Sol

Milwaukee-Chicago based Hip-Hop group Kinto Sol, continue making noise as they take Latin Hip-Hop back to the forefront on their new album titled "La Sangre Nunca Muere" (Bloodlines Never Die) available now in the United States and Mexico on Latin label DISA Records. For over a decade Kinto Sol has created music rooted in their cultural pride, personal urban experiences growing up as


Mexican immigrant youth in the midst of the Midwest, coalesced with their love for rap music, producing their signature sound.   Together in perhaps the most unlikely place for a Mexican family to settle (Milwaukee) they would embark on a musical experience based on a strong work ethic and family bond, all key elements that would lead them to widespread success, without ever compromising their musical vision.

Kinto Sol is comfortable exploring beyond their genre boundaries by working on several song collaborations with traditional Mexican artists such as: cumbia master Chon Arauza, the Duranguense-style popular group K-Paz de La Sierra and 'grupero' icons Liberacion. Evidencing Kinto Sol's limitless musical prowess, as well as the growing acceptance among mainstream Mexican music fans.

In 2005, Kinto Sol delivers another Latin influenced-hypnotic-beat album titled "La Sangre Nunca Muere" (Bloodlines Never Die) released earlier this month (March 3). On this occasion featuring 13 super tracks, the group opted for a more profound and reflexive approach to life by embracing their cultural roots and exploring those feelings of love, sorrow, reflection, anger and success.

Highlights on this album are title track"La Sangre Nunca Muere," "Pase Lo Que Pase," "Mi Pasado," "Y Como Yo," "Esa Es Familia," among others that portray their unique cultural mosaic. Musically this album offers an infectious sound that combines hip-hop, cumbia, even as the Garcia brothers drop gems in English, they have continued to sample traditional Latin music to give each track their cultural seal of approval.

In addition to great music, the album includes an extensive DVD showcasing an in depth interview of the band, concert footage of live performances of the songs "No Muerdas La Mano," "Raza Es Raza," "Hecho En Mexico," plus the videos "Hecho En Mexico," "El Capitan," "Raza Es Raza," "Jambalaya," featuring popular 'Regional Mexican act K-Paz de La Sierra, "Que Me Entierren Con La Banda," "Vamonos," "Soy Yo" and a quirky commercial announcing their extensive merchandising.

The group's name derives from the Aztec legend that states 'kinto sol' would be the last sun to set in this life time, so Skribe decided that in their quest in Hip-Hop music their battle in the fact will endure all obstacles …becoming the last sun to set in this battle, where the only winners are their fans.

Originally from the Mexican state of Guanajuato the Garcia family immigrated to the U.S. in search of a better life in the United States settling in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Soon after they would meet 'El Gordo' a Long Beach native whose parents moved from California to Milwaukee. Soon the destiny of these young talented men united them, becoming one of the pioneering Latin Hip Hop recording artists in the U.S. and Mexico. Kinto Sol's discography includes: "Kinto Sol" (2000) "Hecho En Mexico," (2003) "Del Norte Al Sur" (2004) and "La Sangre Nunca Muere" (2005).
