Ritmo Machine “La Calle”
Filmed in Los Angeles, the music video features infamous West Coast hip-hop landmarks like Pico-Union, the graffiti of the LA river and the bodegas of Boyle Heights.
• Along with Calle 13, Ritmo Machine and Ana Tijoux will be performing a major show together in New York this summer as part of the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) at Celebrate Brooklyn at Prospect Park on Friday July 13, 2012.
Eric Bobo, the son of Latin jazz legend Willie Bobo, recorded and toured with the Beastie Boys during their groundbreaking albums ‘Check Your Head’ and ‘Ill Communication’, and has been a full time member of Cypress Hill since 1994. For the new Ritmo Machine album, Bobo and Bitman also worked with Money Mark & Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys), Sen Dog (Cypress Hill), Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), and P-Nut (311).
There’s also another new video from Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux. Her duet with Academy Award winner Jorge Drexler (“Sacar La Voz” / “Raise Your Voice”) is a sublime reflection on the power of protest. Stylistically the song stands in stark contrast to the hardcore hip-hop vibe of her collab with Ritmo Machine, demonstrating her broad range as an artist.
