Titled Será, the most recent album by the Venezuelan band La Vida Boheme was a Latin Grammy-nominated epic; a post-apocalyptic opera prima that feels like it's about love and life in Latin America, perhaps more specifically in the group's tumultuous home country. Either way, La Vida Boheme continues to play brilliantly with mixing industrial rock, punk, disco, jazz and Latin rhythms.
Henry D'Arthenay grew up in Caracas, Venezuela — a country currently rife with political conflict. As lead singer of the Venezuelan alt-rock band La Vida Bohème, D'Arthenay used that chaos for fuel in constructing the band's latest album, Será, which was released in April.
