During the last decade the scene of hip hop in Spanish has undergone a major revolution, which includes for example, the development and evolution of reggaeton as a dominant genre in the Latin American music industry. In the same way many bands have appeared in different geographic locations that have defined the latin sound of hip hop as Orishas, Los Violadores del Verso, El Sindicato Argentino del Hip Hop, and recently Calle 13.
This indie band, which first appeared in 2006 in the Latin Alternative Music Conference compiled album, is produced by Ivan Benavidez (Carlos Vives) and Richard Blair (Peter Gabriel, Sidestepper, Jorge Villamizar), and already won two Nuestra Tierra Colombian Music Awards on the urban field. Now they are introducing the reissue of their debut album “Somos Pacífico” originally launched in late 2006, but this time with some new songs and sound mastered in London. Undoubtedly, this is the best album from a Colombian artist released the last year (only compared with “Son… para el mundo”, by Jorge Celedón), that contrasts with the weakness of their videos, very low budget and quality of implementation.
