iTunes Review

Mexico City's Caifanes exploded onto the rock en español scene with this self-titled debut steeped in British rock influences and Latin American folklore. On it, they catapult cumbia into the future with "La Negra Tomasa," refashioning the traditional genre with chilly New Wave production; their fondness for The Cure comes to the fore on the goth-leaning "Cuentame Tu Vida." Their secret weapons throughout are Alejandro Marcovich's echoing guitar and Saúl Hernández's haunting wail, which create a combustible combination—radical for its time and spine-tingling even now.

The Best Latin Rock Band EVER!!!

If you're just getting into Latin Rock--THIS is the band where you need to start. I recommend all of the albums of the original CAIFANES, and it's latter incarnation JAGUARES. The music is spiritual and transcending. Their concerts are often compared to ritual ceremonies, and I would have to agree. I was hooked after I saw them live in concert, in which they sounded just as fantastic. Lead singer Saul Hernandez is a God on stage, and his metaphorical lyrics are poetic. Combined with the powerhouse musicians that accompany him the music is simply hypnotic. It is true that before the show is over, the entire audience is fused into one massive living, breathing, rock and roll loving entity--thus why this band is still rocking fans after 20+ years.

A leading light of the Latin American alternative rock community, Caifanes were formed in Mexico City in 1986 by vocalist Saul Hernández, guitarist Alejandro Marcovich, and drummer Alfonso Andre. The group issued their eponymously titled debut LP in 1988, earning some U.S. airplay with the single "La Negra Tomasa." The follow-up, 1990's El Diablito, expanded on Caifanes' sound by further incorporating the influence of traditional Caribbean styles into their dark, synth-driven brand of pop/rock, while...
