Bad Ass Dominicana: Jarina de Marco - She’s is the daughter of renowned Dominican folklorist and singer Irka Mateo, and as a toddler she tagged along with her mom on musicological expeditions. She was raised between Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Canada, where her family was forced to flee after her parents brazenly sang a song against far-right president Joaquín Balaguer in front of a military audience in 1994.
Fast forward a few decades, and Jarina draws on those experiences to make futuristic tropical pop, taking equally from Caribbean folk traditions and hip-hop culture. In a yet-unreleased song, she samples Screamin’ Jay Hawkins‘ version of “I’ve Put A Spell On You,” and flips it into a revenge anthem proudly invoking Dominican vodou, in which spell casting is an actual real thing. What you might not pick up on if you haven’t spent time in the DR is that vodou and Afro-Dominican culture in general is extremely taboo due to centuries of Euro-centric conditioning. So by casually throwing those references into a pop song, Jarina is doing something pretty revolutionary. (Source)
I love the song and video to I Put A Spell On You!
