From the sacred forests of Central Texas and by way of the mountains of Jalisco, the Yacatsol project has just dropped “La Cultura Nos Cura,” a 5-track EP of “conscious cumbia, brujx pop, 3bal, and tamalerx huaracherx.”

“Gotta stay trucha, pon ojo
Families imprisoned, ICE raids, and who knows
They want us scared, like cucuy! cucuy everywhere!
Together let’s break through the fear”

(Lyrics are below.)

Lyrics:

Those in power don’t care about hurting us

Their power sits on our backs so let’s stand up

They say “pay your taxes” and obey silently

Mechanize your part in their machine

 

Gotta stay trucha, pon ojo

Families imprisoned, ICE raids, and who knows

They want us scared, like cucuy! cucuy everywhere!

Together let’s break through the fear

 

They want borders, bombs, to eat death and fear

Frack, enslave, oppress, and profiteer

We must join together to survive

Let’s take a leap, break them chains, and let’s unite

 

We’re all up in the system

It’s come down to us versus them

Take the white blindfold off your eyes

Divest, direct action, decolonize

 

Returning to our earth-based ways is key

For all the colors of humanity

We gotta move, we gotta act, we’re out of time

Take my hand, our liberation is intertwined

 

We’re all connected for a reason

Trust your gut, trust your vision

Even if you’re deep in the machine

Together tenemos que sacudir
