Taína Asili y La Banda Rebelde, based in Albany, NY, combine powerful vocals laid over an energetic fusion of Afro-Caribbean/Latin America, reggae, and rock sounds. The band's eclectic style represents the diversity of its members, who have origins in Puerto Rico, Sicily, Greece, Spain, Brazil and Ghana. Taína Asili y La Banda Rebelde's songs combine a high-energy sound that spans continents and heartfelt lyrics, sung in English, Spanish, Portuguese and kiSwahili, inspiring listeners to dance to the movement of rebellion. In March 2010, they released their debut album War Cry. Journalist Josh Potter of The Metroland, Albany, NY's premier alternative newsweekly, describes War Cry as "a pan-global roots-musical mélange that appeals to the struggle of tradition to envision a world of social justice."
