Piso 21 Releases Ubuntu
First Album Alongside Warner Music
More than an idealistic principle, UBUNTU is a philosophy of life that was born in Africa and concentrates its essence on the loyalty of people and the relationships between them.
The union, loyalty, respect, reconciliation and the solidarity are some of the concepts that determine this lifestyle, style, if it is possible to call it in this way that has come along the members of Piso 21 from their beginning as a band.
Perhaps without noticing about the term or word in their story, Dim, Llane, Pablito and El Profe have lived all their career and development as artists, aligned to UBUNTU…immersed in the magic and nature that leads to a concept so infinite and clean like it is the understanding that the humility, empathy and what makes us human endures and remains in a solid way in the universe if you behave understanding that your own welfare Is better, if you are allowed to do good to others all around.
Four talents, four Friends, four voices, four personalities, like the four elements in the universe, give the best of them to give strength to that everything they are part of, that is how UBUNTU is born, an album which the Colombian band has worked hard during the last months and it is already done to offer it to its millions of fans.

Parallel to the UBUNTU launch, the band presents its new single “La Vida Sin Ti”. This song starts and gives life to the album, it is a song recorded in Los Angeles with Cali and el Dandee; produced by Dande (Mauricio Rengifo) and Andrés Torres. This song introduces a romantic tone, but when it reaches the chorus there is an explosion and it seeks to become a world anthem; it has a melancholy tone, but that does not stop it from having strength and power when listening to it.
The video was made in Guatemala, in several places full of magic, spirituality and respect for the environment; this is the first time that a group of people could get in to this enigmatic spaces to shoot a video, in fact for the recording of the same admission of the production staff, it was necessary to make a ceremony asking for being allowed to the nature, local gods and the Cultural Tikal (Maya) energies to be in communion with everything and give life to the one of the most spectacular videos you could ever see; besides the band wanted also wanted to evoke the 4 elements (water, air, fire and sand), not noticing that each one is one and nothing else, despite being individuals and functioning as a different world, they will always arrive to a meeting point that is music.
