<<rwd<< Afro Funké 11.14.2013: Live performance by latin reggae sensation ALIKA (Argentina)!!
Thursday night, AFRO FUNKÉ LIVE is proud to present Argentina’s dancehall & reggae star…
Alika gained recognition as a fiercely conscious voice emanating from Latin America, writing direct lyrics of respect, dignity and selfconfidence, while also recounting common issues found in many of the third world “barrios” of Latin America.
Her charisma and presence on stage have allowed her to take her show to festivals, theaters, clubs, schools, hospitals and even prisions in different cities arround the world—including Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru, Brasil, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, United States of America. France, Spain and Andorra.—marking a truly amazing career for someone who to this day remains an independent artist.
Alika has five studio albums to date and is credited with having created some of the biggest reggae anthems in the latin reggae world. Tunes such as Ejercito Despierta on the World A Music/Jamrock Riddim (with several million Youtube views) have helped establish Alika as an international Reggae star and have helped place latin Reggae on the worldwide map. A further attestant to this is Alika’s 5th album, which was a collaborative effort with world-reknown dub producer Mad Professor. The 2009 album, entitled ¨Mad Professor meets Alika¨, was entirely produced by the genius of dub himself.
In September of 2007 Alika launched her own exclusive clothing line-Alika Tresde -which has received great accolades. The line is available in Argentina through the widely successful retail outfit Isabel la Catolica, with stores located throughout the country. In August of 2009 Alika also introduced her own signature model of sunglasses developed by world acclaimed manufacturers VULK, currently available in Argentina and Mexico.
