Flow means living your life by your own set of rules and values. By doing so, you allow others to see your true character and what makes you unique. Everyone has exceptional flow, and sharing it with the world is a way to inspire others to do the same and chart their own path to success.
Before you begin your journey, remember that no one can move without activating their heart, body and mind. That’s why Remezcla is teaming up with premium water brand Smartwater to share the smart lifestyle habits of some of our favorite artists with viewers, so they can tap into their own mindfulness habits, including staying hydrated with Smartwater.
Through the short HOW I FLOW video series, Smartwater introduces audiences to a group of talented Latin artists eager to show people how they can work and live smarter and thrive inside and outside of their stage.
The first pair of up-and-coming Latin artists spotlighted in the Smartwater video series are Coco & Breezy. The real sisters, half-Hispanic and half-African American, are DJs, producers and creators of their own brand of successful sunglasses. The road that led them to their current destination was difficult. They were the only kids of color in their school to grow up, which led to them being bullied online and in real life.
Now, as the creators of their original music, Coco & Breezy put their own spin on everything they do. “For us, living smarter is about listening to our ancestors and passing that knowledge on to future generations, so they too can live smarter,” the two share in their video for the series.
Living smarter for Coco & Breezy means writing daily affirmations, eating lots of fruit, meditating together, disconnecting from the world and connecting to yourself. These are just a few of the things that reset their hearts and bodies and allow them to embrace each other’s collective energy.
Another Latin artist brimming with her own verve is La Lulu, who was born and raised in Colombia and emigrated to New York in 2000. Through her music, she blended the two worlds and expanded her repertoire.
“Living smarter is being aware that life is about making choices to improve ourselves,” said Latin Grammy-winning singer, dancer and violinist La Lulu. “I’m trying to reframe the idea of ’the grind’ [and] how it means to take care of your heart and mind too. Getting into the right mental space is key to everything I do.
Salt Cathedral, a band from Bogotá, Colombia, currently based in Brooklyn, New York, also know what it’s like to live the everyday. Hard work has helped them garner over 29 million plays on Spotify and thousands of international fans. The duo, Juliana Ronderos and Nicolás Losada, have traveled the world and played over 250 shows from Japan to Switzerland to their home country of Colombia.
“Living smarter is about finding balance, feeling your body, being grateful and remembering that we can do it,” Ronderos said.
By “letting time take its time,” Salt Cathedral members have identified a way to live a fulfilling life. “[We flow] by finding an inner balance that allows us to express ourselves fully.”
This kind of expression makes all these Latin artists a distinctive voice in the music industry. It’s only a matter of time before everyone discovers just how unique their stream really is.
