Rebel Diaz to continue as a duo.
Bronx, NY, (February 28, 2011) - REBEL DIAZ, the political Hip Hop trio out of Chicago via The South Bronx, will now be continuing their career as a duo. Teresita Ayala, known as Lah Tere, has resigned from the group. In an email sent on February 15th she stated, “After a lot of thought and consideration, I have decided to resign from Rebel Diaz. My personal health and wellness needs my undivided attention and I have made a commitment to make this a priority once and for all.”
RodStarz and G1 will continue performing as Rebel Diaz and working as a part of The Rebel Diaz Arts Collective (RDACBX), the Hip Hop community space they opened in The South Bronx in 2008. Teresita Ayala also resigned from the work of RDACBX for the same reasons. “We believe the work of Rebel Diaz is larger than the individuals that make the group. We will continue working in our community with the RDACBX and seek to continue spreading our political message throughout the world with our music,” says RodStarz.
Rebel Diaz’s debut album, THE RADICAL DILEMMA, will be released in the upcoming months. "We wish Teresita the best in her quest for personal wellness and health. We look forward to making new music that addresses the struggles and victories of our community,” says G1.
Rebel Diaz will be performing at this year’s South By Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin, TX, in the upcoming weeks.
