Ely Guerra Sings Ska

August 8, 2009

Ely Guerra shows a little hometown solidarity by singing a love song with Monterrey ska band, Inspector. You can find this skadorable track, “Noviembre,” in Inspector’s new self-titled album.

Now, I love Latino ska so much that I can admit that the genre lacks good singers. It’s okay because ska is not so much about vocals as it is about the quality of the music, the vibe, and the culture—and yes, about preserving those things. But this is why this collaboration works. Inspector lays out a nice traditional ska, while Ely gives the tune an emotional depth that makes Inspector’s music even more enjoyable to listen to. It worked for Mimi Maura, and here it works for Inspector and Ely.
