Aziatic Touches Down in Belize

Cyril Uruwei

Son of Hopkins Vince Lewis, popularly known as Belizean artist Aziatic and the man behind the punta song Chatty Chatty, touched down in Belize today. Aziatic has been working along with producer Juni Mar on a new album featuring paranda tracks. The album entitled “Automatic” is being finalized and will have ten songs including a collaboration with Andy Palacio prior to his death several years ago. But the artist along with his manager, Cyril Uruwei came to News Five studios today to launch his new single, “luriba wasinu”, which when translated means the evil of our sins.

“We’re at a synergistic point so to speak. We’ve been working together over the past few months talking about music and how we could help our fellow Belizeans especially underprivileged youths in the school. So what we are doing here is collaborating and integrating music with education. Most of the tracks that you will hear from the new album will address social issues and it will speak to what’s happening in Belize and everyday life as well.”

“The new album is pretty much an album that I’ve been working on for the last eight months or so and the direction I am taking this album is mainly paranda music. So it is not gonna have punta tracks on there. I have tracks that I collaborated with a few artists on it—it is something that I’ve always wanted to do for a long time. It is something that I’ve always done in the past anyway, but this new album has something special because I have a track that I did with Andy Palacio. The first single that I’m releasing is called “luriba wasinu” and what it really talks about is dealing with social issues and how the life that we as a people in our homeland is going through in terms of everyday life. It is also talking about a young lady who is in conflict and fighting with her parents and kinda going out and having a good time and not focusing on what is important. It deals with a lotta things that young people are dealing with today.”

“We want to produce music that will outlive our generation. It is one thing to bring out a track that will hit today, tomorrow, this year; that people will dance to. But that track will easily fade away in the background. So the type of music we are trying to come up with. We are working with music that will outlive us and music that you can keep in your archive and it will still be good for years to come.”
