As part of my lifelong attempt to make this world a better place than when I got here, I present you this CD-my latest attempt to counteract suffering with happiness (in the form of music for dancing that I hope will nurture, inspire and bring joy). My songs, written from 1977 to 2010, are about ecology, Palestine, Tookie Williams, El Salvador, Prisoners, love, hate, brainwashing, state sanctioned murder, U.S. imperialism, with just a little sex thrown in for good measure.

As a resident of Earth, with no regard for national borders and a love and fascination for all cultures, and I write in English (my first language), Spanish (my second language) and my friends write lyrics in Arabic (a special shukran here to Karim Amrani for the Arabic in Condena Indefinida). Each of the 12 original songs are a different rhythm and flavored with West Africa, Cuba, the Middle East & the U.S., often in fusion. There’s salsa, salsa rai, cumbia arabe, guira-rock/rap, montuno, guaguanco, baladi, makhsoum, blues, folk-rock, West African inspired, & a South African inspired acapella choral song. There’s lots of catchy choruses you can join in on, so put on your dancing shoes y ! A GOZAR!
