LOCAL AVANT-GARDE MUSICIAN SAAKRED’s CD RELEASE DECEMBER 20
Saakred’s first full-length album, FLI HY will be released Friday, December 20, 2013 at The Collective. FLI HY is an eight-song body of work, rooted in resistance, masked with layers of electronic exploration. On Friday, December 13 at 12 PM Saakred will release the first single, titled Alumbramiento along with a video montage of her 15-foot pyramid installation at Luminaria: Arts Night in San Antonio.
Chosen by the SA Current as the “spotlight stealer” of 2012, Saakred “uses elements of Native American music and spirituality, performance art, and electronica, but the truth is she dances to the beat of her own drum. She’s an uncompromising, intense performer with an hypnotizing power you won’t forget” (Enrique Lopetegui, SA Current).
With the intimate 2012 release of lo-fi demo Thunderbird Speaks, FLI HY is a much clearer message to a generation consumed with individualism to think deep and commit to the advancement of self and community, by any means necessary. The album features eight hard hitting songs focused on socio-political issues such as police brutality, militarism, patriotism, geopolitics, as well as personal accounts of sacred indigenous ceremonies. December 20th promises to be Saakred’s most intense performance yet.
