19 June 2024... a.k.a. Juneteenth...

Not only a very important date in Black history, but also the release date of
"
The Crime Of Silence", the 3rd. album project by internationally acclaimed
independent recording artist AMARU.

A project that started back in November of 2021 and which came to completion in May of 2024, the album comprises 16 tracks of new music by the entertainer, two of which were released ahead of the album's release. The multi award-winning "
Traces Of My Melanin" and the 3x NUMER ONE Spanish language dance single and tribute to the LGBTQIA+ community "Este Hombre (El Tesoro)".
All songs were written, arranged, and performed by AMARU, while the production was
once again in the hands of himself and his long time musical collaborator Marcel van Ling.

You will get to know AMARU even better by listening to his new collection of songs,
as the singer candidly divulges about his struggles about moving from South America
to Europe, the hardship that he was met with, misplaced jealousy and envy,
but also the joy and success that he has worked very hard for
to achieve and enjoys.

While the title track may speak for itself to some, choosing one's battles in this day and age is
something that has to be taken into consideration at all cause. It's very noble to speak
about the injustices that we as people perpetrate upon ourselves, but at the same time
we have to be cautious as to when, where and how we express
our disdain for injustice of any kind. 

"
The Crime Of Silence" by AMARU features tracks that will inspire and motivate, 
but as a listener you will also be invited to think about life, about the state of the
world, about our future, as is very typical for AMARU's lyrics. And as per the 
entertainer every song on this album is covered in a massive undertone of love!

"While I'm not against 'here today, gone tomorrow ' kind of songs, I do want my work
to stand the test of time and make a difference", he says.

"
The Crime Of Silence" by AMARU is released on this day coinciding with
and as a tribute to the celebration of Juneteenth, much like the first single of
this collection "
Traces Of My Melanin" was back on Juneteenth 2023.

"
The Crime Of Silence" by AMARU is now available worldwide on
digital download on all platforms of digital music.
