EL PLÁTANO MADURO (THE RIPE PLANTAIN) BY DOMINICAN-CANADIAN SINGER-SONGWRITER RAFAEL ENERGÍA DOMINICANA!
The delicious, rich and flavourful plantain is in the spotlight and having its moment of glory in the new song “El plátano maduro” (The ripe plantain) by the Dominican Canadian singer and songwriter Rafael Energía Dominicana. The subtle double entendre of the song lyrics and bachata rhythms are sure to inspire joyful fun and a great time on the dancefloor.
“El plátano maduro” was inspired by Rafael’s childhood and experiences working at his family’s farm in his hometown in Baní, the capital town of the Peravia Province, Dominican Republic. Rafael started working on the farm when he was around 5 years old, helping his father Patricio "Balito" Medina, son of Dionicio Medina and Angelita Peña. Balito was known and appreciated for his great knowledge of different crops such as chili cachucha, cassava, onion, papaya, tomatoes, bananas and the mighty plantain. Rafael’s reflection on these beautiful memories accompanied by his natural Dominican-Caribbean humour inspired the first lyrics of the song: "A mi me gusta el plátano, a ella le gusta el rulo, a mi me gusta verde, y ella quiere maduro".
“El plátano maduro” was produced by Rafael and Leandro Mejía in the Dominican Republic and in Montreal, Canada. It is released on all digital streaming platforms on February 25, 2022. A video clip and a remix will be announced soon.
