ABRAZOS is a noun and a verb; a people, a place and an action! It is a cultural community, creative collective, autonomous arts alliance, and a musical movement of the masses.
Led by the Prophet (of the people) aka Not4Prophet, and form(ulated) from within the funky flames of an all star arkestra made up of improv insurrectionists, ABRAZOS ARMY consist of sound salsaboteurs, musical militants, rhythm rebels, lyrical liberationists, and other artonomous aesthetic abrazartistas and creative commandos who come together to foment a fiesta for your right to fight!
Like Funkadelic, ABRAZOS ARMY believes that if you "free yo mind, your ass will follow!" Like Bob Marley, we affirm that "music can unify the whole universe;" and like Fela Kuti said (and we agree), "music is the weapon" that we choose to arm ourselves with.
With that credo in our (collective) mind(s), ABRAZOS ARMY endeavors to embrace space and touch time to compose community and decolonize (our) culture…
ABRAZOS ARMY is an in your face embrace!
