Zatélithe is Afrofuturism. It recreates a sound laboratory that uses diverse aesthetic manifestations of the African heritage mixed with modern linguistic manifestations such as slam, popular expressions, Spanglish and other artistic expressions such as graffiti. All exposed on a fusion of African rhythms such as Afrobeat, Dancehall and Ragga that, wrapped in an urban musical base like funk, claim a multicultural identity that we Latinos Americans carry.
Zatélithe assumes this mixture as a forceful aesthetic bet of the sound universe of black music, without specific labels, but honoring the African cultural legacy. He is committed to extending to his audience all the energy that characterizes his vocalist on stage, as a master of ceremony that involves them in a party full of fun, dance, color and intelligent reflections and full of humor about current social events, thus achieving resonance in an audience with a broad spectrum of age, gender and social status.
Throughout his career, Zatélithe has produced 3 albums that are part of his sound exploration . Fritos de Mi Tierra (2009), Colombianada (2013) and neWeed (2021) all full of joy, rhythm, humor and in the case of Colombianada, with an activism for sustainable mobility with the bicycle as a means of transport of choice, which it becomes an important communicative force for Zatélithe; evidenced in the video Ciclobeat (Ft Pamela Ospina) that gives an account of the urban expression that characterizes it. In 2020 he has his third album Neweed ready, in which he places a stronger emphasis on funk and dancehall as urban sound fusions, without moving away from popular expressions, slam and spanglish, or the colorful extravagance of Afrofuturism. as aesthetic references of his legacy, with 3 musicians and a DJ on the stage, he is betting on delivering a show full of colorful joy, humor and lots of love; so that the public forget their worries for a moment, move to the rhythm of the dance and integrate with the people around them on a journey that, supported by a VJ, envelops them in an Afrofuturist experience. He is also responsible for the NEGROFEST, a music and cultural festival focused on the most alternative music and artistic manifestations of the Afrocolombian community: food, muralism, poetry, dance, etc. (Instagram: @negrofestco)
