Rebeca Lane – Obsidiana

In the midst of territorial conflicts, making protest music in Central America can be a dangerous game, but Guatemalan sociologist, poet, actress, rapper and activist Rebeca Lane has stood strong against oppression as a passionate supporter of women’s rights and the preservation of Latin American heritage and natural resources. In the Mayan worldview, Obsidian – the precious stone that gives its name to her most recent album – represents the protective energy that helps to cut the negative and unveil mysteries. It is a stone used for healing, but also for war. This new album blends powerful rhythms and traditional instruments with powerful lyrics and the essence of boom-bap.
