JAR-E TO RELEASE ‘CHICAS MALAS’ & TOUR WITH TOUBAB KREWE / MP3

jare-leaves_20090113_204803_phixr.jpgCreative force Jar-e is set to release ‘Chicas Malas’ on Exotic Recordings, 2/24, a 10-song collection of lush, genre-defying pop songs that seamlessly blend Latin beats and lyrics, jazz nuances, horn-fueled soul, and are bound by the bewitching voice of Asheville, NC based bilingual singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jon Reid.

‘Chicas Malas,’ literally translated as “bad girls,” was conceived in Mexico and inspired after a journey that took Jar-e through Greece, Cuba and Britain. “I start as an empty vessel,” Jar-e says, “and absorb the sounds of my environment into the music.”

These world influences are loud and clear on tracks like Jar-e’s first single, “Casa Believe,”; Jar-e plays with rhythm and tone, while singing a heartfelt and infectiously catchy melody:
