Video: Behind-the-Scenes Making of "Soul Force" Directed by Eric Morgan for DVZN Media www.youtube.com/watch?v=64GLgn-CddY

The album, Libertad, reflects today’s current mobilization among Black and Brown communities in the face of debilitating cycles of police brutality, flawed educational systems, privately owned prisons and detainment centers, corporately owned politicians, and racist judicial systems. In this climate, Third Root, a group born out of Black and Brown cultural dialogue, offers Libertad as a talking piece surrounding such issues as anti-Black, anti-Mexican, anti-immigrant, anti-poor and anti-working class sentiment. Through Easy Lee and MexStep’s back and forth Black Chicano intellectual flow, DJCG’s dynamic turntablism, and Adrian Quesada’s AfroLatino psychedelic funk-infused beats, the album delivers a mix of social justice and jam session with each song designed to raise questions, incite discussion, and promote healing, growth, and liberation.
