ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by theological experiences, love addiction, redemption from an emotional suicide, and 70’s Latin Soul music, Miami-based Puerto Rican actress/poet Deborah Magdalena gave birth to FUNKdalena, her first album in 10 years:

“This is the first time I’ve written pretty poetry, funky poetry-- the kind of poetry that makes you want to dance and make the ugly FUNK face”, proclaims Deborah.

Produced by her long time musical collaborator The Brass King, this dynamic duo have meshed, hashed, re-arranged, composed, poetically ciphered, fixed and remixed tracks inspired by funk and soul legends including Eddie Palmieri, Jimmy Smiths, Roy Ayers, Tanya Gardner, Donny Hathaway, The Delfonics, and Earth Wind & Fire. With FUNKdalena Deborah bares her poetic soul while celebrating her Latin and Jazz FUNK roots. Her Latin Grammy winning brother Nestor Torres jams along with his famed Jazz flute on “Voodoo Princess”, a poem they co-wrote 8 years ago. Deborah pays homage to her late aunt Ruth Fernandez on “Mi Tia” featuring Rafael Hernández’s legendary hit “Gracias Mundo”. FUNKdalena also features the powerful vocals of Antonia Jenaé in what is slated to be the next women’s anthem, “Diosa”, and listeners are in for another treat with “Razones”- a unique Spanish take on Earth Wind & Fire’s “Reasons”, with vocals by up-and-coming singer, Kinetic.
