The Hip Hop Hoodios, a Latino-Jewish urban collective is releasing a new EP entitled "Viva la Guantanamera" on August 7th. 18% of all profits will be donated to Amnesty International and will go towards our efforts to close the prisons at Guantanamo Bay and to encourage the full restoration of Habeas Corpus! The main song on the EP is called "Viva la Guantanamera" and features the Hip Hop Hoodios, Wildog, Frank London and Lorin Sklamberg of The Klezmatics, Kemo the Blaxican of Latin hip hop pioneers Delinquent Habits, and instrumentalists Walter Miranda from the Beastie Boys and Plastilina Mosh and Chris Washburne from The Syotos Band and Tito Puente! Other songs include tracks from the Hip Hop Hoodios earlier albums.

If you choose to buy the EP on iTunes you will get an exclusive bonus track which is an awesome live performance of "Ocho Kandelikas" that the Hip Hop Hoodios recorded on LATV. If you get it on eMusic you'll get another exclusive track called "Tu Margarita" that is an anthem regarded as the greatest reggaeton song of ALL TIME (and it was recorded in only one hour!)

You can listen to "Viva la Guantanamera" here now. Click here to listen.
