New music: ‘Llamen a mi Gial’ by Noblezza El Colombiano| 16 February, 2014
What better way to welcome the final countdown to Barranquilla, Colombia’s, carnival (March 1-4) than with some new “reggaecumbia” music?
“Llamen a mi gial” is the latest by Plato, Magdalena, -born urbano/reggaeton artist, Noblezza el Colombiano (real name: Alvaro Camargo Jaraba). The track features folkloric drums as well as a roots vibe via the very dreadlocked Bogotá -based reggae group, Alerta Kamarada.
Noblezza grew up in Barranquilla, where he says he was influenced by folkloric sounds, and carnival, of course. Later, his family moved to Bogotá, where he developed a love for reggae and reggaeton. The combination of both worlds, and the success of singles, “Bien Vacilao” and “La Kinkycumbia,” have resulted in Noblezza being a Colombian artist to watch.
“Llamen a mi Gial’s” lyrics are a homage to Colombian cumbia, la vida costeña, and the country’s women.
