August 1st, 2013 – Oakland, CA: Los Rakas return from two sold-out shows in Colombia and Chile this past weekend.  Newly inspired by the overwhelming welcome they received, the Panamanian-born duo decided to put out the track, Camaleón. The track was produced by Colombian producer Myztiko.This isn’t the first time the group has been inspired by Panamanian icon, Rubén Blades.  2011’s ‘Cueria also sampled his ‘Pedro Navaja‘ – you can watch the mini-film here.  This time around, the topic turns to the special lizard which changes colors to adapt (or in this case, hide) from its surroundings – the Chameleon. Off Blades’ 1991 album ‘Caminando,’ his song ‘Cameleon‘ serves as both inspiration and warning:

Ten cuidao con el Camaleón!
Aunque te enseñe la cara, no te muestra el corazón.
Be careful with the Chameleon.
While it will show you its’ face, it won’t show you its’ heart.

Los Rakas headline this Saturday’s Art + Soul Festival in hometown Oakland, California and prepare for their upcoming release, Soy Raka presentsEl Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo‘ while playing shows internationally and working on major collaborations before the end of the year. Stay tuned and always stay Raka!
