ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rafa Selase charted out his career in music and performance art by leaving audiences speechless with his multi-media infused social exploration titled, “The Souletics Experience.” His newest release, “Red Blooded American,” is a deeper journey into his musical gift, our national history, and the current social and political landscape.

While some may experience a 30-second brain malfunction reminiscent of Jimi Hendricks’ performance of “Star Spanglanded Banner,”

Selase's album says “America is rock ‘n’ roll, American is freedom and America is expression. When Jimi Hendrix’s dropped his eyes wide open guitar-shredding 1969 performance of the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock, many people called it ‘blasphemy’ and ‘ridiculous noise,’ but as Hendrix said, ‘I thought it was beautiful.’

Selase album exemplifies what can be done when we are free to express ourselves!

Some may not know of singer/songwriter Rafa Selase, as many of his first recordings were primarily piano instrumentals in the new age relaxation meditation genre. But Selase is one artist who likes to keep people guessing. His first vocal release, “Red Blooded American.” mixes piano, guitar and powerful vocals that will send heads spinning. He is sending a clear message that he thinks before speaking.

“Part of what makes America so wildly amazing is the freedom to be as quirky, intelligent, crazy and artistic as you want,” Selase continues. “My music is the opposite of crazy — it embraces all that we are…free!”

“Red Blooded American” album is a clear example of an intelligent, caring segment of American culture that illustrates why we need the beautiful diversity of this colorful nation in which we live.

For those that take the time to listen to this album it is sure to be an anthem for many. After listening to this album, I can say with a certainty that we don’t want to go backwards.

There are several America-themed songs. But an anthem is something that you remember and repeat! An anthem is generally a patriotic musical composition that evokes emotions, brings to light distant memories, the history, traditions and struggles of its people. There are so many gems in this album that you will find yourself repeating some of the vocals. Red Blooded American is it!
