La Vida Buena means the “good life.” This latin group based out of Austin, Texas incorporates hip-hop, funk, and jazz into their music. They take traditional pop arrangements and add a special twist of salsa to the mix. With the right amount of salsa rhythm and hip hop beats they create bilingual melodies that set them apart from your typical salsa group. Musical influences include Orishas, Manolito, La Charanga Habaranera, The Roots And Ozomatli. Their shows are packed with energy and are always a party of a lifetime. They recently released their debut EP Checkpoint Alpha to rave reviews in the Austin Music scene. On January 23, 2014 Mayor Lee Leffingwell proclaimed the day “La Vida Buena Day.” The synergy and fun they transfer from the stage to the audience is a testament as to why they are living la vida buena.

Son de Rey Releases “Oye Mi Amor” Music Video on Blastro2


We want to thank Blastro2 for their recent coverage of our latest music video “Oye Mi Amor.” The video was directed by Hans Gotun and Kamie Dorris and was produced by lead vocalist Luis Miguel Ramirez.

The video took a month of production planning, and over 40 hours of filming over the course of 5 days and features fans, friends, and family of Son de Rey. 

Costumes were designed by Omar Lisandro, host of the new web series StyleXSight. The shoot took place in a South Austin home that was transformed into an 80s party house. 

We’d like to thank all those who made this music video a success! More in store for SDR in 2014. Thanks for the love!
