Burning Star - Self-Titled (2003)



"Burning Star emerged into the Los Angeles music scene in 1998, capturing the attention of a diverse and conscious listening audience. Often described as eclectic soul, this multi-cultural band arranges music that includes an eclectic mix of Hip-Hop, Reggae, Soul, Gospel, Funk, Latin Jazz and Middle Eastern Music. They find inspiration in the cultural diversity and experience of its band members; who offer their own musical influence to create a harmonious sound reminiscent of the late 60's and early 70's, when music was played and its spirit celebrated.
Bringing together seven of Los Angeles' best musicians, Burning star is compromised of: Koliyah Whitecloud (M.C., Lead Vocals), Yoshua Alvarez (M.C.,Vocals), Quincy McCrary (Vocals, Keyboards), "Alter" (Guitar) Emilio Saenz (Bass Guitar), Cisco Huete (Drums), Gerardo Morales (Latin Percussion). The band features lyrics that speak of the constant common struggle for dignity, family, community and strength from culture....."--Excerpt from band bio
