Acerca del single debut producido por Orbe Ortiz (Toto La Momposina, Playing for Change, Dusminguet, Radio Malanga) en sus propias palabras Leo Pizarro nos dice:

“Bella luna refleja la nostalgia que llevamos dentro cuando estamos lejos de algún lugar o de alguien.

Si hay un retrato que nos pueda llenar de calma y acompañarnos en una noche solitaria , es alzar la mirada al cielo y ver la luna allí, nunca falla.

La luna ha sido inspiración para la humanidad desde nuestros inicios…

La luna es nuestro anhelo , nuestra paz, nuestra esperanza, nuestra casa, nuestro lugar , la persona que amamos, la que convierte la nostalgia en un canto que cura, la que nos motiva a seguir en el camino, la que aunque no tengamos equipaje nos monta en el viaje”.

About the debut single produced by Orbe Ortiz (Toto La Momposina, Playing for Change, Dusminguet, Radio Malanga) in his own words Leo Pizarro tells us:

“Bella Luna reflects the nostalgia that we carry inside when we are far from somewhere or someone.

If there is a portrait that can fill us with calm and accompany us on a lonely night, it is to look up at the sky and see the moon there, it never fails.

The moon has been an inspiration to humanity since our inception …

The moon is our longing, our peace, our hope, our home, our place, the person we love, the one who turns nostalgia into a song that heals, the one that motivates us to continue on the road, the one that even though we don’t have luggage rides us on the journey. “

“Corona King” by Dawn Drake (Feb 12, 2021 on PMX Records) chronicles a pandemic romance that is already barely hanging by a thread on Zoom. The relationship finally succumbs to a lack of actual human connection that many of us have experienced in 2020.

Imagine if your computer screen is actually a bad dream come true? Many singles in lockdown all over the world went for months without actually being in the presence of other human beings. Social media and video chats have been the only human connection we have had during the pandemic- and Zoom, Facetime and Skype have become some of the only potential romantic connections we’ve had as well. This bad dream for Ms. Drake tells a somewhat autobiographical tale of being in quarantine already cutoff from all social ties; the final straw is when that special someone catches coronavirus and is never heard from again. S/He becomes the “Corona King” for whom the song is named.

In Dawn’s signature fashion of accompanying her darker lyrics with grooves that light up the dance floor, the video for “Corona King” sheds a sunny light on the subject matter as the protagonist prevails. Dancing and singing into the post-lockdown summer and fall, she makes lemonade out of the tale, converting it into a passion-filled dance number that is at once New Wave Pop and Cuban Timba (Salsa Cubana) with some dashes of Afro-Cuban folkloric references that conjure up images of Changó, the Orisha of male virility, and Ochún, the Orisha of love and sweet waters. “Corona King” shows us that all is not lost in the world and that even when the floor is shaking… you can still dance!

Dawn Drake & her band of over a decade, ZapOte (a luscious tropical fruit) are beautifully filmed by Okay Motion in a lush Brooklyn backdrop that features the signature Colamari Horns (Jackie Coleman and Lynn Ligammari of Durand Jones, Antibalas and Red Baraat), the sounds of the tres guitar played by Benjamin Lapidus, as well as Drake’s own bass, vocals and percussion. The tight rhythm section featuring Rosa Avila (Summer on Broadway, Broadway Bounty Hunter) on drums and Mara Rosenbloom on keys makes you want to get up and groove all the way into post-pandemic land!

While you’re grooving you’ll be in good company with choreography by Hansell Vaillant of La Habana, Cuba accompanied by Ms. Drake and Brooklyn dancer Michele Drysdale. Cameo appearances by Brittany Anjou of BiTyrant and Eliane Amherd from the voice of Switzerland make it all in the family. A motion filled piece from beginning to end, the moves in “Corona King” will give you the energy you need to shake off the Corona King you may have in your own life.

Who is the “Corona King” in the video premiere? We may never find out, as the plot is purposefully gender-non-specific. One is left to guess who the actual Corona King really is. In the end, the takeaway is that perhaps there is hope for singles even in and beyond a global pandemic!
