London-based Colombian songstress Lao Ra, continues to shine with new track ‘Bala’. A brazenly intriguing display of refreshing tropical-electro-pop bliss.
On the first track of her Bacano bootleg series – out now via Black Butter – the Bogota-born pop rebel reveals: “Bala (Lao Ra x Tony Montana Music x Spice) is about Pablo Escobar and the memories I have from the 90’s in Colombia – the news on the telly and my parents’ conversations from when I was very little. The referee, the TV presenter, the prison that he built, the wild animals that lived in his finca. ‘Bala’ means ‘bullet’; so does ‘plomo’, and those were his most famous words: ‘plata o plomo’ – ‘money or a bullet’.”
