RITA AND “THE MYSTERIES” DEBUT
Dominican group, Rita Indiana Y Los Misterios (The Mysteries), has released its debut album, El Juidero. Capitalizing on the past year’s underground success and mainstream buzz, the alternative, merengue-infused band continues to push the experimental envelope with some, equally as thought-provoking, visuals. The video for the title track is a blaxploitation-inspired piece that references much of the corruption and espionage that took place in the Dominican Republic’s past. While you’re watching, keep an eye out for a cameo from Merengue legend, Johnny Ventura!
