Cultura Profética

Details

Originally formed in Puerto Rico in 1996, the Latin GRAMMY Award winners and GRAMMY Award nominees Cultura Profética are a pioneering and multi-million selling band whose work explores a unique fusion of Caribbean reggae and Latin genres such as bossa nova, tango, jazz and salsa. Cultura Profética's lyrics regularly engage socio-political and ecological issues—including Latin American identity, corruption of power structures, and environmental conservation—along with the universal message of love. "The worst part is that history has ingeniously covered up the fact that we are one of the few remaining colonies. While we are not yet free or truly associated, we are considered a Free Associate State," explains founding member Willy Rodríguez. "The current predicament facing our country has prompted us to have these discussions. The bare necessities are all our brothers and sisters are asking for. That's why we turn to music: it's a medium that naturally encourages or facilitates the discussion of serious matters."
