Neo-Perreo Queen Tomasa Del Real Lets Her Hair Down In “Barre Con El Pelo” Video Premiere
Successful tattoo artist-turned-new wave reggaetónera, Tomasa del Real is back with her neo-perreo ethos and feline prowess in “Barre Con El Pelo.” The chromatic visual, whose experimental beat proves to be a sweaty, syncopated club bop, points to the booty-dance culture that has historically surrounded the well-traveled genre that is reggaetón (a music engineered in Puerto Rico, but born out of Jamaican and Panamanian reggae, with elements of U.S. hip-hop).
Long associated with poor or low-class neighborhoods all throughout the Caribbean, perreo (or neo-perreo, rather) has triumphantly forayed into popular culture, thanks in part to women like Tomasa del Real and other contemporaries such as Chilean misfit LIZZ. Even the likes of Karol G and BIA have made a career of trap-reggaetón and dembow, carrying a torch that was ignited early on by the pioneering genius of Ivy Queen, for example.
Currently running the independent circuit and making a name for herself at DIY reggaetón parties around Latin America, Tomasa premieres her new audiovisual, ”Barre Con El Pelo.” Watch it exclusively on TIDAL.com.
