Originating from Venezuela, RAWAYANA has become one Latin America’s most exciting acts with their high-powered live show and their distinctive fusion of reggae, funk, soul, rock, and Caribbean rhythms. To date, Rawayana has released four studio albums: Licencia Para Ser Libre (2011), Rawayanaland (2013). Trippy Caribbean (2016) and Cuando Los Acéfalos Predominan (2021). The band scored a nomination for Best New Artist at the 18th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards after the release of their third album Trippy Caribbean.
They’ve also have had several impactful collaborations with industry powerhouses such as Danny Ocean, Natalia Lafourcade, Los Amigos Invisibles, Cultura Profetica, Alvaro Diaz, Elena Rose, Akapella and more. In 2022, Rawayana continued to tour internationally in support of their latest critically acclaimed album, Cuando Los Acéfalos Predominan, performing at major festivals such as Lollapalooza (US & Chile), III Points, and Pineapple Ball in addition to headlining shows in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Tel Aviv.
So far in 2023, Rawayana has kicked off the next phase of their career with the release of several new singles, “Binikini” (feat. Danny Ocean), and “Dame Un Break”. Both releases have become the fastest growing singles of their career thus far, and will be followed by a string of new single releases ahead of the release of their new album, which is slated for release in Q3 of 2023.
As a prolific touring band, Rawayana is gearing up to support their new music with touring and festival stops in Latin America, North America (over 30 cities in Q4), and Europe throughout 2023 and 2024.
