JONAHLO & NICO FATCAT – LASTIMOSAMENTE
By mid 2021, Colombia experienced one of the strongest and most extensive national strikes in the country’s history. “Lastimosamente” is a track made up of Afro-House rhythms influenced by Colombian roots; with samples based on songs (Alabaos) from the Colombian Pacific, reflecting the desperation and helplessness of our society towards a corrupt government that has only shown apathy for a lifetime.
We can hear a strong bass line (Ostinato) with a mood that encourages dancing and protest, accompanied by synthesizers that enhance this feeling of struggle against the oppressive state.
Producers Nicolas Rojas aka Fat Cat and Jonathan Lopez aka Jonahlo get together for the first time to make this composition as a result of the situation that was being experienced in the country, wanting to show nonconformity and thus accompany the Colombian people in the struggle.
The release of the single “Lastimosamente” comes as a surprise the week before the first round of the Colombian
presidential election, as a free download to support this challenge.
It will then be available on all platforms from July 15.
