In our latest installment of Step Off! Radio, we bring to you a very special ‘lost’ episode recovered from the Step Off! vaults. This episode of Step Off! Radio with binational Hip-Hop group Tulengua was originally recorded last year on February 27th, 2020, to promote the release of their album LOWKEYBANGERSVILLE. Shortly after this interview was recorded our computer crashed. We lost a bunch of material and seemingly our beloved Tulengua interview along with it. Fast forward nearly a year later while adding the new podcast page for the website, we discovered a backup file of the interview tucked away in a folder. Tulengua is a bilingual, biracial, and binational Hip-Hop group that is comprised of group members Amari Jordan, Alan Lilienthal & Jimmy Mora. Members of the group live claim residency on both sides of the border U.S./Mexico border in San Diego and Tijuana. Together, Tulengua is a tapestry of multiple cultures, languages, and sounds that defies borders and genres. Resulting in a culmination that is quite unlike anything else seen or heard in Hip-Hop. In our discussion, we detailed the origins of Tulengua, how its members met, the various nuances that entail being a binational Hip-Hop group, as well as their experiences regarding living along the Southern border. With that said, we here at Step Off! Radio hope you all enjoy our discussion with Amari Jordan, Alan Lilienthal & Jimmy Mora in the ‘lost’ Tunlegua episode.
