Doctor Nativo

Doctor Nativo is one of Central America’s most exciting new talents. His music explores themes of Mayan spirituality, social justice and folk wisdom, punctuated by an explosive sound combining reggae, cumbia, hip hop, and Mayan traditional music. His first solo album, Guatemaya, is out in June of 2018.

 

Guatemaya is the first single from the debut album of Doctor Nativo, an exciting new artist from Guatemala. On his debut album, produced by internationally-renowned Ivan Duran, themes of Mayan spirituality, social justice and folk wisdom, are punctuated by an explosive sound combining reggae, cumbia, hip hop, and Mayan traditional music. Guatemaya is something of a folk hit in Guatemala, contributing to a renewed sense of identity among youth in the country, while inspiring audiences around the world  to sing along with the catchy hooks. The song combines dub production methods, traditional Mayan and Garifuna instruments, with guitars and percussion. The EP comes with two remixes from Oonga. First, the track gets the club treatment, optimized for tropical dancefloors and big bass-heavy systems. Second, a downtempo dub techno remix for the all-night dancers, full of hypnotic build and release.
