By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Philbert ‘Flako’ Leslie is releasing the official music video for his hit single Una diabla (Devil woman) on Thursday, December 23 on 128 international music platforms like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and YouTube.
Philbert ‘Flako’ Leslie is a singer from Benque Viejo del Carmen who earlier this year released his music album En la oscuridad (In the Dark).
“It’s a reggae dance hall song, a party song, it talks about the ladies who are attractive, seductive, and independent,” Flako Leslie said in an exclusive interview with Breaking Belize News (BBN).
“I decided to release it on December 23 to close a very productive year so starting January we can start 2022 brand new and fresh promoting new music, Flako Leslie said. “This year, I produced four music videos, Cuando una amor se va, (When a love is lost) from my new album Simples palabras (Only words), and Ella se fue (She left me), Porque tú (Because of You) and now, Una Diabla from En la oscuridad,” Flako said.
Una diabla was composed by Flako himself and the music track was produced by Junie Mar Studios of Dangriga. The music video was produced by Bamboo Studio Productions of Benque Viejo del Carmen.
Like Ella se fue, Una diabla is Latin Reggae Dancehall Benque Viejo-style and has a catchy tune that will get you dancing.
Una diabla is one of 14 tracks from the En la Oscuridad (In the Dark) album.
Born on September 19, 1981, Flako Leslie composes his own songs. He says when he first started music as a teenager he performed at the Noches Culturales in Benque with local group, Benque Viejo Underground Crew, along with Manuel ‘Lil Meme’ Sosa and Raul Omar ‘Rabbah Man’ Obando (both deceased).
He then moved to Belizean Entertainment from San Ignacio.
“I was doing music, back then with Belizean Entertainment which comprised of Nadir Leal (Leal J), Joe Moreno’s daughter, Conchita Moreno, Ruben Echeverria, Amilcar Vasquez and me, Philbert Leslie. I’m talking about 2005-6. We had a hit called Sugar Daddy,” he said.
He quit music around 2006 but returned with renewed vigor over the past year. He says what drives him now is his children.
Leslie says he’d like to see more attention given to Latin music for it to grow. “Normally in Belize music, the focus is on dancehall reggae in English. I don’t want to create any misunderstanding, but I would like to see that more support is given to Latin music. Don’t forget that there are young people out here who are making Latin music, reggaetón, reggae, and other genres. And the focus is only a few people. There is a lot of potential in Latin music as well.”
