Biography

Recently selected to participate in an MTV reality TV production entitled "Rally MTV" and live appearances alongside the greats of punk rock such as Pennywise, Rancid, and Flogging Molly, Guajiro continue their successful trajectory through both worlds of anglo punk rock, and through their latin roots, the Spanish music market. The band with their inimitable "Rock en espanglish" have just released their first full length album "Material Subversivo"(the title taken from a Cuban official that denied the entry of the first ep into the island declaring it "subversive material"). Continuing the exploration of themes pertinent to their bilingual experience in the US, the record reflects the musical and ideological duality within a band that consists of Cubans (guitarist/vocalist Will Lopez and bassist/vocalist Jorge Gonzalez), Puerto-rican David Santos (guitarist) and Irish drummer Doug Mackinnon. With such diverse musical guests on the recording such as "trecero" Julio Martinez (Albita, Compay Segundo) and bass-player Randy Bradburry (Pennywise), The record is a musical bridge between the US and Latin American cultures.
