Furlafa is one of the independent music groups from Mexico that show
that not all great bands are signed to labels and some times that this isn't a
bad thing. The band has created a Spanish documentary called, Goodbye For The
Roof, which shows their perceptions on what it means to be free from the
limitations. This is a freedom in making music that is true to them and not to
the social standards or to the restrictions that labels or other controlling
entities to artists.
The video is not meant to show the negatives, but the positives that the band
has discovered in their course of embracing the beauty of the music they express
from their talents and hearts. This depth of devotion is where they are forever
true to their own vision of how their music should be and it has translated into
something that their fans love. Their music has been seen as fitting into many
genres, depending on the particular song. Much of it that is more electronically
driven closely fits into Synthpop with a little Synth-Rock. The more acoustic
songs tend to have a more Alternative Rock feel, but with a soft edge than much
of the music in the market.
It is their unique perception in their music that has taken them to many
directions that have not only had a positive representation in Mexico, but in
any market they have been presented to. They have shown that their artist
freedoms have made them truly one of the hidden gems that Mexico has to offer
the music world.
