Reyna Tropical Shares New Single ‘Conexion Ancestral’

    Reyna Tropical – the project of guitarist and singer-songwriter Fabi Reynahas – has unveiled a new single, ‘Conexión Ancestral’, lifted from her upcoming debut album Malegría – out March 29 on Psychic Hotline. Give it a listen below.

    “‘Conexión Ancestral’ is about starting the journey towards being in relationship with another part of my raíces,” Tropical explained in a statement. “For me, that’s connecting with my Indigenous ancestors and the inherited knowledge that I carry through the love and listening of the land, its original stewards, and in turn with myself and my community. It’s about being willing to sacrifice everything I’ve ever known for the chance to be in reciprocity and trust with the earth, and allowing that relationship to be my guide towards belonging.”

    “I’ve always wanted to have a home—a place or a sound or a person to go to—because I think our people, who are severed from our lands and our histories and our stories and our communities, have for generations not really known where to go,” explains Reyna. “There are times on stage where I can feel that my movement isn’t my movement. I can feel that I’m being moved by and I’m speaking for other people. I know in my body when my ancestors are there, when a decision is us.”
