Rock fusion with Latin American and worldwide sounds
They grew up listening to the elder Nahuatl speakers—with their deeply rooted traditions and customs—while also being exposed to the modern culture of a cosmopolitan city. These are the sounds that inspired them to experiment and create a fusion of their ancestor’s traditional Mexican rhythms with global melodies. Their music is a combination of sones calentanos from Bajío, jarochos or huastecos; jarabes, pirekuas, cardenche songs and cumbias; sambas, rock, and jazz.
The members of BuenRostro played and danced those rhythms even before the inception of the group on October 8th, 2010. With time and experience their sound matured, resulting in their current “infusion” of different musical genres and styles. Although they’re sometimes difficult to label, BuenRostro manages to find a deep connection with anyone who listens or watches them perform, no matter their age.
“Volcano” was inspired by the power of nature, by the force of life that manifests itself in elements such as water, wind, fire, and earth. This imposing life force inhabits the depths of a volcano. In Mexico, there is a great variety; many of them are dormant volcanoes, waiting for their moment. Humans currently sleep like an inactive volcano: automatons, drowsy, absorbed by routines, accumulating energy, dreams, and desires. Like a volcano, we have the power to wake up and rise again between lava and rocks, towards a different tomorrow, together in the re-evolution.
