It took a second (not much more) to realize why this new video by Adversitive is called Lara. At first, we thought about Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft but as soon as we scrolled down we saw the full picture, Lara is in fact, Jennifer Lara. Now, we did not know Mrs. Lara but we dan sure looked her up right away.
Her Wikipedia page told us about her Jamaican roots and reggae sound but not much more. So we did a little deep dive and found some very nice tunes.
Truth be told, one of the nicest things about skate videos is the music. You get to know so many good musicians through video parts, but as we grow older we see the repetition as well. At some point, you have heard and seen somebody skate to Curtis Mayfield for about one too many times (often to the same track.)
We say all that to tilt our hat to all the people that are setting skating to more original music. Tunes that will make you press that like button, grab a pen and paper, or your phone to Shazam whatever is playing.
Now just press play!
