Orishas were a Cuban hip hop group from Havana, Cuba, founded in 1999 and split in 2010. The group was first called "Amenaza", "threat" or "menace" in Spanish, and appealed to the Cuban youth who were hungry for African-American culture consisting of hip hop and rap. Orishas delved into a realm of music that created a black identity to which some among the younger generations could relate. The group is based in France where they made a deal with a record company, although they visit Cuba frequently.
El Kilo is the third album by Orishas, a Cuban hip hop group based in France. It was released on March 29, 2005, on the Universal Latino Label.
