Bio

Actitud María Marta is an Argentinean hip hop group with roots that delve deep into the rich music cultures of Latin America and Jamaica. This innovative sound fusion is mixed with the group's personal, forceful view of the world and the reality that surrounds them. The group is made up of Malena D'Alessio and Karen Pastrana, rappers and composers who make it their business to set the mike on fire in the role of MC, and Karen Fleitas who adds her soulful, melodic quality to this all-woman trio. In terms of sound, their music is a hip hop-reggae-Latin cocktail enriched with samples of tango, traditional Argentinean music, dancehall and a constant interaction between sweet melodies and strong, head-on rap lyrics. It's striking to see how naturally these three women fuse hip hop power, ragga flow and R&B melodies with the spirit of reggae, in a musical torrent that carries the imprint of their South American identity, together with an imposing onstage attitude. From the start, the group has been characterized by a strong social commitment, actively played out through their participation in many festivals supporting the social struggles of the disenfranchised such as: unemployed workers, Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, disadvantaged neighborhoods and favelas, using music as a tool for transformation and solidarity among peoples. In this line, they have participated in international events like the World Social Forum in Brazil, the World Youth Festival in Venezuela, the Summit of the Peoples of America in Argentina and an endless number of social events at which they perform in solidarity. When listening to Actitud María Marta, audiences can't help but enjoy themselves and dance to the rhythmic tunes. But the group also invites us to reflect on their lyrics, taking us deep into the turbulent waters of the South American situation. Their prose is spiced with a wide range of subjects ranging from social chronicles to stories of daily life and a profound, introspective look at humans and the existential problem. Actitud María Marta have taken their project to stages all over the planet, participating in many festivals in Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Venezuela, Cuba, Spain, the US and, obviously, Argentina, their native land. They have played with leading international hip hop artists like Dead Prez, Public Enemy, Cico C, K'naan, Cypress Hill, Hermanos de Causa, MV Bill, Tiro de gracia and El gran Silencio, among others. They have also shared a stage with acclaimed musicians like Manu Chao, The Wailers, Mad Professor, Ojos de Brujo, O Rappa, Fito Páez and León Greco, to name a few. Years after the release of their first album "Acorralar a la bestia", Argentinean newspaper's Clarín and Página 12's "Best New Group" in the 90s are still following their course with a hectic schedule of concerts and the imminent launch of their third album. This new material is the result of an intense process of musical exploration mixed with committed lyrics, and promises to make Latin American hip hop history complete with international projects and productions.
