By: AR Entertainment
MIAMI - March 5, 2020 - PRLog -- With the February 21 debut of "Siempre Hay Solución," (There is always a solution) six singles have now been released from Inside, the musical journey launched by Cuban musician and artist X Alfonso. This new and dynamic track is a mixture of thoughtful and reflective beats about the enormous power inherent in every human being, and how important it is to make the best use of our attributes of understanding, our sensitivity, and our own value system in order to enjoy personal freedom.
As is typical of his musical productions, "Siempre Hay Solución" combines edgy yet thoughtful lyrics with electronic sounds and a good amount of ethnic and tribal rhythms. The single can be heard on digital music platforms and on the artist's website.
Video for "Cambio" with visuals by renowned Cuban artist José Bedia released
This past February 14, a video of the first single from the album Inside, "Cambio," (Change) was released. After several months of work, the designers and audiovisual producers Raupa and Nelson Ponce (responsible for much of the visual concept of the album) have released an animated video that is full of Afro-Cuban elements. Inspired by the famous Cuban artist José Bedia, the clip uses the symbol of the fugitive slaves and their search for freedom as a way to present every man's pursuit of freedom.
