WARA 'Leave To Remain' [Album teaser]

Excerpts of 5 tracks taken from the forthcoming release and debut album from Wara “Leave to Remain” on Movimientos Records. To be released in June 2013. Wara, the nine-piece band of young musical revolutionaries on the Latin London scene, are set to release their debut album “Leave to Remain” in May following their cutting edge, critically acclaimed EP “Flesh and Bone” (Movimientos Records, 2011). The album sees the band take their trademark sound to higher grounds, effortlessly combining Cuba's most danceable rhythms and styles – Timba, Salsa, Cha-Cha-Cha, Rumba - with contemporary urban elements such as Reggae, Soul, Hip-Hop and Jazz. The songs are threaded with boundlessly multilingual and conscious lyrics that range from social and political commentary; with themes of migration, land grabs and displacement in songs like ‘Somewhereland’ and ‘Leave to Remain’; veering to the fickle whining party scene divas in ‘Caprichoso’. Then there's ‘Run For Cover’, with its London riot fuelled theatrics, followed by an acoustic remake of ‘Flesh and Bone’ that goes straight to the soul.
