Description

Bad Education is a soulful heater that will shake your hips and your social consciousness. Inspired by the afro-latin soul blends from the likes of Joe Bataan and Ray Barreto, this collaboration between Timmion Records and Yemayá Sol Records - brainchild of Bardo Martinez (lead singer of Chicano Batman); makes a statement.

The horn laden groove will transport the listener to a summer in New York. The memorable flute line by Ernie Hawks is flavorfully funky while the pulsating tumbao of the conga carries the vitality of a Nuyorican neighborhood in full effect.

The force of the rhythm section provides the vehicle by which Martinez lays down a fiery indictment of educational institutions, defining them as a mouthpiece to the military industrial complex.

The music and the message flow together in a very classic sense, packing a punch that gives it to the man; necessary now more than ever!
