Caifanes Bio

Caifanes is a Spanish-language rock (Rock en Español) band from Mexico City formed in 1987. They achieved fame throughout the late 80’s and early 90’s. The original lineup consisted of Saúl ernández (vocals & guitar), Sabo Romo (bass guitar), Alfonso André (drums) and Diego Herrera (keyboards and saxophone). Argentine guitarist Alejandro Marcovich (es:Alejandro Marcovich) joined n 1989.

Caifanes are considered to be one of, if not, the most important Latin Rock group to emerge from Mexico and an important reference point in Latin American rock (Rock en
Español) genre. Caifanes’ style can be described as a hybrid of British new wave, prog rock, and Latin percussions underscored by deep, somber, and uniquely Mexican lyrics and the vocal style of Saúl Hernández. Members of Caifanes have cited King Crimson as a major influence.

The name Caifanes is derived from 1940’s Mexican Pachuco (zoot suiter) slang "Cai fan". Its equivalent in English would be something like “cool dude.” The word has also been used to describe the proverbial Mexican Pachuco, delinquent, or outsider.
