Osunlade and Carlos Mena bring you the latest full-length release on their imprint Ocha Records: Ezel's Secreto
Already establishing himself with house remixes for Yoruba Records and King Street, Ezel's debut reveals to us the talent that this young songwriter/producer has to share with the world. In Secreto you will find sincere stories about love, passion, faith in God, struggles & dreams - all of them brought together by Ezel's personal experiences and spiritual growth in the Yoruba based tradition of Lucumi (Santeria).
With an all-star roster of featured guest such as Djinji Brown, Tamara Wellons, Monday Michiru, Diamond Dancer, Kia Bennett, Quetzal Guerrero and Carlos Mena, this album will be a long-player in your headphones and in the clubs. Secreto is a true global soul statement, a wonderfully balanced collection of songs where deep soulful house meets the Caribbean vibes meets Tech sounds meet Jazz.
