In recent years Calle13 have been increasingly using their huge platform across the Spanish speaking world and beyond to showcase progressive political issue and highlight injustice. With the target of the mainstream corporate media and it’s distortions firmly in their sights they have just launched their new track ‘Multi_Viral‘ a collaboration with Wikileak’s Julian Assange. Musically it’s a guitar-riff heavy mash up of hip hop and drum’n'bass with a little cumbia joining forces with Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello and Palestinian political artist and singer Kamilya Jubran. Download it on the SoundCloud link below and watch Rene (Residente) in conversation with Assange below.
