Septembre Lewis Interviews Lester Rey
Boogaloo Singer | Cosmic Raza | Chicago, IL
I realized I really enjoyed creating music. It wasn't so much the coolness or the swag, the chains or the image. I didn't want the image, I really loved music. Lester Rey
How's your day panning out? Beautifully, I'm sure.
Tune into this week's TGMS interview with Lester Rey, he's an amazing guest! If you'll notice, he's really laid-back, and calm-spirited.. The setting/aura of the conversation is COMPLETELY different than other interviews.
He's the lead singer/founder of Cosmic Raza and part of the production duo Humble Village, Lester Rey has ventured off into a solo career with the mission of reviving a classic Latin style of music by bringing it to the modern age and empowering the people with his spoken word put into song form. Working closely with Ben Antunez aka Benzi Blues, the producer of Cosmic Raza and part of the production duo Humble Village, Lester Rey and Blues have been fine tuning the aesthetics of the sound and expressing their creative freedom as an Indie project...
As the first Humble Village project, Lester Rey is setting a tone for the duos success with the revival of Boogaloo. He sings Boogaloo revival music as well as neo-soul, R&B, Reggae, Salsa, and is influenced by Hip Hop. He is the songwriter, composer, arranger, and producer.
The founder of FiveStar.fm has supported Lester Rey in the past and continues to support his endeavors.FiveStar.fm said “Good job guys! 10 months of hard work for a hell of a mixtape.” The music can be found on Facebook, Souncloud, and Bandcamp.
The music is empowering to communities that have been oppressed and a call to stand up against injustices. Lester Rey sings a genre that stresses that there is a time for dancing, loving, and fighting.
