About Xenia Rubinos' Dia Libre en el Yanky

Xenia Rubinos, the prolific New York City-based artist who’s broken barriers of sound and style is back with “Dia Libre en el Yanky” - the third in a series of re-imagined tracks from her critically acclaimed album Una Rosa.

A play on the track “Working All the Time”, which reflects and critiques the toxic cycle of overwork for little payoff under capitalism, “Dia Libre en el Yanky” is what Xenia calls ‘a triumphant summer jam’- it maintains much of the original track’s spirit, including the repeated motif ‘and it was my day off,’ while layering in a cutting cypher and vocal improvisation. ‘Marco and I had a blast producing this track that felt like a celebration of the original song and a summer victory lap for Una Rosa,’ remarks Xenia. The track features a gut-punching cypher from Cuban rapper El Individuo, who was also featured on the recently released track “Madrugada”.
