Amiguitos de La Peña Presents: Asheba
- La Pena Cultural Center, Berkeley CA
TRU BLOO releases highly-anticipated full-length solo album, TRU STARZ.
Featuring special guests Wanda Kruda, The Galloping Sea and DJ Trinity
TRU STARZ, Bloo's sophomore solo release after The Water-Carrier Mixtape in 2010, is an eclectic melange of Bloo's global musical influences, including classical, old school hip hop, jazz, funk, blues, rock, latin and arabic styles. Tru's new album includes collaborations with Wanda Kruda and some of the most talented producers from Beirut, Lebanon to Oakland, CA. A melting pot of flavors, TRU STARZ delivers unique fusions with Bloo's messages of social justice and grounded spirituality in an era of auto tune and rap songs void of any true meaning.
