Spanish-Bolivian Hector Guerra entered the music business when as a 19-year-old he was invited by DJ Lord (Prophets Of Rage) to open for hip-hop legend Public Enemy. In 2006 Hector founded Pachamama Crew, at first just a bunch of musicians from Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean, busking in Madrid's metro stations. However, thanks to the sale of thousands of demos, soon the project started gaining momentum, eventually even earning them a record deal with Warner Music, resulting in 'Lagrimas', the band's 2011 long player debut. After the dissolution of Pachamama Crew, Guerra moved to Mexico where he started working on a solo musical trilogy. In 2012 there was already 'Amor', followed by 'Gracias Por Existir' in 2015, and now there's final chapter 'Desde El Infierno'. For the trilogy Hector travelled all over Mexico Hector to meet with some of the various native communities in the country - the Purépecha in the forests of Cheran, the Wirrarika in the Wirikuta desert, and the Seri or Comcaac in the Sonoran desert - and the interludes on 'Desde El Infierno', on the album called 'Cantas De Poder', are chants by a shaman oracling under the influence of toad venom. Unfortunately the rest of the track list is a bit unbalanced. Hector Guerra blends everything from hip-hop over trap, to cumbia sonidera, harawi, reggae and EDM, and the one time that results in tropical Euro-trash like 'Love Is Love' or the similarly sounding 'Libre De Apegos' and 'Tranqui, Chilling, Manito', but elsewhere on the album produces extremely enjoyable tracks like 'La Cumbia Callejera' and 'La Cumbia De Cuervo', each time in duet with the king of cumbia sonidera Alberto Pedroza, or the dancehall meets hip-hop and harawi of 'El Sariri'. Our personal favorite from the track list is 'U.S.A. Es Mexico', cumbia meets hip-hop, for which Guerra was joined by legend of the latin rap, Mellow Man Ace, and an excerpt from a speech by Donald Trump about Mexicans was sampled: "I Love Mexican People!", with Guerra and Ace promptly replying: "Si quieren poner un muro, vamos a pintar un graffiti! Si quieren poner un muro, nos lo vamos a saltar!" (loosely translated: "If they like to build a wall, we will spray if full of graffiti! If they like to build a wall, we'll jump over it!"). On 'Desde El Infierno', Hector Guerra takes you to all corners in hell, and sometimes that results in a heck of a party, but elsewhere makes you want to get out of there as soon as possible!
