She has also been performing with her new band, The Word Love, showcasing live renditions of both Lucid Dreams and Living through 27, her forthcoming debut R&B/Soul/Hip Hop album produced by Christian Okami.
For Rina, the power of the voice isn't simply about making beautiful music. It is also about stirring the spirit and elevating it to a higher plane of consciousness. As a mother, educator, and most importantly, a creator, Rina is constantly geared toward making a positive impact on her audience, be it in a classroom, for a church congregation or in a stadium filled with cheering sports fans. Rina is destined to rise to the upper echelons of the music industry and will achieve renown by bringing soulfulness back to music as a whole.

Balam Garcia Bio
Balam Garcia is a Los Angeles based guitarist and composer who combines groove based styles such as
Blues, Funk and Soul music with his Jazz and Classical music training and influences. Born in the state of
Veracruz, Mexico and raised in Los Angeles, California, it is no wonder that this culturally mixed musician
manages to incorporate such an eclectic variety of sounds into his playing and compositions. His sounds
are reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Fender Strat-fueled blues guitar playing,
combined with Herbie Hancock’s harmonically and rhythmically driven styles of improvisation, all the while,
paying homage to the west coast Hip-Hop sounds of his hometown of Los Angeles and the many world
music styles he grew up listening to at home, including music from West Africa, India, Brazil, Cuba and his
native country of Mexico. Balam Garcia aims to bring peace to his community and the rest of the world by
spreading positive vibrations through conscious music.
