Bridging the gap between Spanish and English speaking music fans, Guajiro is the face of “Spanglish Rock”. With their new record, Material Subversivo, the band continue to fuse Latino imagery with their own brand of punk rock creating a fresh sound that owes as much to late ‘70’s Oi as it does to Cuban Son. Based out of Hialeah, a working class town on the outskirts of Miami, the band is Comprised of two Cuban exiles, Will Lopez and Jorge Gonzalez-Graupera, Puerto Rican David Santos and Boston born Irishman Douglas Mackinnon. Given their diverse backgrounds, it is no surprise that themes of political and social struggle ring so true in their lyrics. With their first single “Santa Fe”, the band retells the story of a man abandoning his homeland in search of the promise of freedom. With verses in English and easy to sing-along choruses in Spanish, the tune is at the heart of what Guajiro is about: Unifying a bilingual audience with sincere and straightforward songs that rock with a conscience.
