conrazón = con razón (with reason) + corazón (heart, life, pulse)
…is a banner for a new type of artist development for a much smaller, hyper-connected <and therefore BIGGER> world!
conrazón supports (in varying capacities) the development of artists and projects from throughout the Latin and African diaspora (which spills into US Urban sphere): ambitious artists/creators with roots, passions, complex multi-identities who are re-balancing the world with their amazing output and live shows!
conrazón exists in the murky and unglamorous world of artist development that’s evolving everyday; it’s a combo of management, pr, liaison, team building, media communication, partnerships, ideas, a+r, booking + logistics that is constantly being refined and redefined.
conrazón apoya (de diversas maneras) el desarrollo de artisas y proyectos de la diáspora latina y africana (que nacen en la esfera urbana en EEUU) artistas ambiciosos creadores con raíces, pasiones, múltiples identidades que balancean el mundo con su arte!
conrazón existe en el turbio y no glamoroso mundo del desarrollo de artistas que evoluciona diariamente. Es una mezcla de management, relaciones públicas, trabajo en equipo, comunicaciones y medios, asociaciones y lógística que son constantemente refinadas y definidas.

“Oakland-based Raka Dun and Raka Rich represent some of the best in Spanish-language rap coming out of the US, with a classic flow married to beats that draw from dancehall, future bass and good ol’-fashioned boom-bap.” – AOL SPINNER | Youtube Channel
“Not only is she bringing her own brand of the hot Brazilian underground sound to the rest of the world, but from her international vantage point she operates like a provocatively rhyming hurricane, sucking up global riddims from ghettotech to dancehall and flinging them back out at gale-force speeds.” – MTV
