Kin Balam From the Indigenous lands of Kuxkatan, Nekepio, El Salvador, born in the heart of a peoples revolution, raised in the northern lands of turtle island, burying his heart in the pain and urban warfare as a youth with a soul hungry for meaning and connection, years later learning to die to a lifestyle that has shattered the foundation of his community and country with blood and fire, Kin Balam In Lenca Poton and Maya Qechi translates as the path of the jaguar, meaning the return to our Indigenous culture, our roots, our healing, and the journey to our personal truth. Flamenco, Latin American, Indigenous Mesoamerican, Afro Latin, Latin Jazz, Classical, Rap, Hip Hop, are all the elements that makeup the powerful fabric of this new yet ancient rooted musical style. Fusing the hardcore rap delivery usually associated to gangster rap KB has decided to utilize that same vein of art and feeding the streets medicine, hope, healing, and revolutionary evolutionary guidance. The Mesoamerican Indigenous instruments integrated into the musical landscape are all of pre colombian colonial origin and therefore bear with them the unique identity of central american indigenous culture and spirituality. The Afro Latin rhythms deepen the meaning of this reality with the connection and bridging of african culture and struggle in the earth and flesh of the Amercicas Colonial history. And finally The virtuoso Flamenco guitar is the sword that ties all of these elements as one diverse family which sets to speak as one heart, one voice, in one language. The language of our humanity.
