INSPECTOR - from Monterrey. INSPECTOR is one of the most representative ska bands in Mexico with twelve years in the music scene. Formed in late 1995, their influences come from the history of ska and its distinct waves. In 2002 they are signed by Universal Music and produced the album "Alma en Fuego". Thanks to hits like "Amnesia" and "Amargo adios", Inspector became the first ska group in Mexico to receive a platinum record in 2003.

2012 (spoken as twenty-twelve in English) is a rock/reggae outfit, fusing political poetry and love songs in two languages. Excellent musicianship is a given for any Mexican artist, the awareness of their locality makes 2012 so intriguing. The struggle between identity and recognition is evident in the band.

LOS MALOS, a 4, sometimes 5 piece (acoustic, electric guitars, bass, drums and sometimes violin), brought a very communal feel to the evening. One of the members come from Mexico and the other three by way of Chile, forming a natural kind of international musical union. Their an outfit which truly defines the term the whole is better than the sum of its parts. Not to say that they're not talented musicians. Their songs are a union of each instrument, communicating in a way where the music and the playing feed off each other. The fills from each musician complimenting the material. Nothing too showy or fancy, just some well-placed contributions from each player.
