Bituaya is a result of the socio-political and cultural merges experienced by Venezuela today. All the rhythms of the Afrocaribbean come together to embody the urbanity of Caracan hip-hop, mixed with electronica elements. The verses speak of the beliefs, dreams, learnings, flavors, loves, and pains that are found in every major Latin American city, and intrinsic to Caracas. Having a nexus with Revolutionary Latin America, the world-wide Hip-Hop phenomena, and Venezuela's own Afro-caribbean influences, Bituaya's music is a completely unique experience. Morphing out of a group known in Venezuela, Sontizon, Bituaya has already made head-way with their first recordings, performing with groups internationally known, such as Calle 13 and Los Van Van. Currently, Bituaya is promoting their first album, Yerbamora, domestically, and is touring the Venezuelan cities of Caracas, Barquisimeto, Maracaibo, San Felipe, San Casimiro, Merida, San Cristobal y Maracay.

Bituya presents its promotional tracks:

Yerbamora: this electrocumbia was made to be danced to, while the verses speak of the curative plants of the rain forest.

Lionza: from the genre coined as "electrocaribe" or electric caribbean, this song shares about Maria Lionza, a Saint in Venezuelan folklore, who is believed to perform miracles.

Bruta Cultura: made in the style of a Cuban son, this song features Mayito Rivera of the world renown Los Van Van.

Amor en Cana: this bolero tells a story of love and longing from the inside of a Venezuelan prison.

Aqueda: an electrocaribe, again featuring Mayito Rivera de los Van Van, speaking about young, urban youth and the importance of a loving family.
