Colombian/Italian artist MARIPOSA comes through with a booming single “Gang”, which celebrates the importance of family and the community of chosen people that support and inspire you but may not always be blood-related. Armed with her silky vocal tone, she employs a subtle melodic flow over the bass-heavy trap backdrop and flips the script a bit with some inflections and off-beat cadence. The song provides a further glimpse into MARIPOSA’s spellbinding world that is inhabited by self-proclaimed “hyperactive weirdo who just wants to be free” and is lined with menacing raps, themes of female empowerment, community, and a post-modern style.
Trilingual artist MARIPOSA taught herself how to make music and record from scratch as a vehicle for self-expression and healing. She is at the forefront of a movement shifting the music landscape to be more fluid and inclusive. She represents a new generation that exists between cultures, languages, genres and whose multi-dimensional identities are at the forefront. MARIPOSA’s music is rooted in immense honesty and transparency about her journey in hopes of uplifting others.
