New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Appalled and enraged by current political and social turmoil, Cecilia Villar Eljuri is once again turning to her music to express her frustration. Following her critically acclaimed album 'La Lucha', Eljuri has written a motivating theme to inspire her sisters and brothers who are in the fight against injustice for the long haul. Her message and the title of the track is 'Keep it Up'.

"The song just came to me, like a gift of encouragement, for all the hours and efforts I have made towards speaking truth to power and fighting for social justice. Everything seems to be flying at me fast and it's hard to make sense of it all. But, I know that I'm up for it and am not alone. In the face of corruption, abuse and injustice, social change can go viral. - 'El cambio social es un cambio viral cuando todo no está bien'." -Cecilia Villar Eljuri

Caught off guard and inspired by this undeniable tune, Eljuri and her label Manovill Records decided to record and produce 'Keep It Up' in time to release the song before the 2018 midterm elections in the United States. This is the first time Eljuri has released a single independent of an album. Currently she is working on a reggae project to be released in early 2019 with which she plans to tour in 2019-2020.

Eljuri reaffirms her original sound on 'Keep It Up' with her funky guitar and hooky bilingual vocal riffs. Tapping on her New York City hometown team to execute her vision, Cecilia (vocals/guitars/synth) called on Alex Alexander (drums/percussion) for his perfect pocket grooves and Johnny Pisano (bass) to rock and reflect her music. This little gem came together in the perfect vibe of NYC's Downtown Music Studios with recording engineers Juan 'Saucy' Peña and Zach Hancock.
