DeLon, International Recording Artist, Launches the ‘Feel Good Music Movement’ with His New Album ‘Blueprint for a Revolution’
Known For The Controversy With Fellow Sri Lankan Artist M.I.A., DeLon Continues to Stand For A Cause and Progress Hip Hop Internationally.
In today’s cultural landscape of global adversity, DeLon’s music motivates people to join the “Feel Good Music Movement” ushered in by his musical core of Hip Hop, which still embraces the influences of R&B, Pop, Trance and House. His fluency in Spanish and love of Latin culture balances his International sound.
In 2005, DeLon’s first album The Connection yielded him “Calor De La Salsa” a fusion of Salsa and Hip Hop that landed DeLon at #22 on the Billboard charts (Top 50 Hip Hop/R&B Singles). He subsequently garnered a unique title “First Sri Lankan on the US Billboard Charts.” In 2007, his album Unstoppable charted with the single, “Nasty Girl,” landing at #36 (Top 50 Hip Hop/R&B Singles). He was awarded “Best Rap Performance” at the 2008 South Asian Derana Music Video Awards, which is equivalent to America’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The core of Hip Hop is “The Battle” and in this case DeLon’s is over terrorism. In 2008, DeLon used his music to shed light on the inhumane terrorist attacks in
DeLon, after surviving the 2004 Tsunami that hit
DeLon’s success in music is the result of daily efforts at his full-service independent label Ceylon Records. For more information visit www.myspace.com/DelonRap
